Covid Catch Up Funding

Allocation of Covid catch up funding.

£2,310 in the Infants school and £4,620 in the Junior school.

Following EEF guidance we have used the funding to order laptops as pupils’ access to technology has been an important factor affecting the extent to which they can learn effectively at home. Lack of access to technology has been a barrier for many disadvantaged children. EEF states To support learning, how technology is used matters most. 

We have also provided after school ½ hr x3 a week for school staff to provide small group tuition to those that need it to support catch up of  skills in reading, writing and maths. EEF states Programmes are likely to have the greatest impact where they meet a specific need, such as oral language skills or aspects of reading, include regular sessions maintained over a sustained period and are carefully timetabled to enable consistent delivery.  Laptops will also be used for this with carefully selected programmes. 

We will track progress and using formative assessment ensure that we are diminishing the difference caused by the lockdown to ensure children are making substantial progress.
