Catch Up Premiums

  The Inclusivity Of Our Curriculum 

Covid-19 Catch Up Premium

The government COVID-19 catch-up premium has been established to mitigate the effects of the unique disruption caused by coronavirus. Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support pupils to catch up for lost teaching time over the previous months.

To support schools to make the best use of the funding, the EEF has published a support guide:

Covid Support Guide (for schools) 

A summary of their best practice is as follows:

Overall Strategy Area Specific Strategies
Teaching and whole-school strategies

Supporting great teaching, 

Pupil assessment and feedback. 
Transition support. 

Targeted approaches  One to one and small tutition.
Intervention Programmes.
Extended school time. 
Wider strategies  Supporting parents and carers.
Access to technology.
Summer support. 

As with all government funding, school leaders and governors must be able to account for how the money is being used. Therefore the impact and spending strategy will be reviewed at every Academy Improvement Board (AIB) meeting throughout the academic year. When Ofsted re-commence routine inspections, they will make judgements about the quality of education being provided which will include how you are using the funding to ensure the curriculum has a positive impact on all pupils.
