Pupil Premium and Covid-19 Catch Up Strategy
The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. We report annually on how much money we have received, how we plan to spend it, and the impact it has. Please find below our strategy and evaluation documents.

To respond to the Covid-19 pandemic and the potential loss of learning time that children experienced due to schools having reduced numbers on site and periods of self isolation for close contacts, the government has provided schools with additional funding to support enabling children to catch up.
As is clear in the Pupil Premium Strategies, the school always has a comprehensive array of catch up provision in place to support children in making additional progress since in ordinary times, there can be many reasons that explain why a child is not working at age related expectations.
As such, our Covid-19 Catch Up Strategy sits in partnership with the Pupil Premium Strategy as well as our SEN Strategies. As such, it does not cover everything that we provide for Catch Up but describes how we will seek to spend that particular funding to complement the other plans we have.
