COVID-19 Catch-Up Premium
In July 2020 the UK Government acknowledged the unprecedented disruption caused by the COVID-19 global pandemic to children's learning. At Shawfield Primary School we have the professional knowledge and expertise to ensure learning for children recovers quickly and that they are soon back on track. This is a one-off 'premium' has been given to ensure school's have the support they need to make up for lost teaching time. Our school's initial funding allocation is likely to be £16,000.
Our use of funding has been to enable small group tuition, using the school's experienced teaching staff, who have already built effective, trusting relationships with each pupil. As with all government funding, school leaders are held to account by the School's Governing Body to ensure this funding is being used to support the goal of getting children back on track, whilst teaching an active-skills based curriculum as quickly as possible.
