COVID Catch Up

Following the lengthy period of school closure we are being given funds from the government to support students in catching up work that was missed. In total we are expecting £64,640 across the year. The process of strategically allocating these funds is ongoing. However, the principles upon which we allocated funding is outlined below:

1) Our focused curriculum planning and our quality teaching and learning are the most effective tools in supporting student to catch up work missed.

2) This planning and teaching will be based upon regular and accurate assessment of student learning.

3) Where this regular assessment indicates that students need extra support to catch up missed areas of knowledge or skills, and this is not something that can be done in the context of normal classroom teaching and planning, then that support should be offered on a one-to-one/small group basis. These sessions will be targeted on specific areas of missing knowledge/skills. Where possible, we will strategically use the National Tutoring Programme/external tutors to support this.

4) We will consistently recognise our responsibility for supporting the emotional re-integration of students (and staff!) into school. Specific planning will be undertaken to support this on a whole school/year group/tutor group basis. Where we assess that students need extra support, this will again be offered on a one-to-one/small group basis.
