Catch Up Premiums
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:
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.
|Targeted approaches||One to one and small tutition.
Extended school time.
|Wider strategies||Supporting parents and carers.
Access to technology.
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.
