Coronavirus Catch-Up Premium
Due to the Covid-19 global pandemic, many pupils missed education. The Department for Education has allocated additional funding to schools to fund specific activities designed to support pupils to catch up on lost teaching time. The funding is allocated on a per pupil basis with £80 for each pupil from Reception to Year 6.
At St Paul’s Catholic Primary School, we believe that by having the highest expectations of all learners, the highest possible standards will be achieved. The Covid-19 catch up premium is additional funding given to schools in England to raise the attainment of pupils impacted by the covid-19 global pandemic.
We will focus the support to ensure all pupils continue to make good progress with the broad aims for St Paul’s Catholic Primary School being: -
- Pupils will be ready to learn and will continue to make good progress in their learning, following a significant time away from school with remote learning in place for many pupils.
- Reading (including the teaching of Phonics), Writing and Maths will be a priority for all children, and we will continue to provide quality first teaching from Nursery to Year 6.
- Attainment outcomes at end of 2020 - 2021 for all year groups will be at least in line with those at the point of lockdown in March. If a child was working at an age-related expectation in a subject in March 2020 we aim that they will be working at least to an age-related expectation in Reading, Writing and Maths by the end of July 2021.
