Covid Catch-Up

How is it intended that the grant will be spent?


The grant will predominantly be spent targeting those from most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds to enhance both academic ability and well-being. High quality one to one sessions will be provided by teachers and TAs outside of usual working hours as a catch-up strategy.  To allow the interventions to be most effective they will be guided by the child’s class teacher, linked to the curriculum and focused on the areas where pupils would most benefit from additional practice or feedback. The interventions are consistently reviewed and adjusted as necessary. Reading schemes are currently being researched to compliment general interventions across the school.  


How the effect of this expenditure on attainment of pupils will be assessed


Baseline assessments have been carried out to inform gaps for further specific development. Both class teachers and pupils involved have completed a qualitative data survey. Similar assessments and surveys will be undertaken again in February to show progression in target areas. Target tracker statements will be a clear indicator as to how the children have progressed.
