Catch Up Funding

COVID-19 Catch Up Funding 

The government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up lost time after school closure. This is especially important for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds. This funding includes:

  • a one-off universal £650 million catch up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time
  • a £350 million National Tutoring Programme to provide additional, targeted support for those children and young people who need the most help, which includes:


Fulwood & Cadley's Allocation of Funding

A total of £10,360 has been allocated to school this year, this funding will be used to pay for a teacher (supply) to focus on school-led tutoring.  This means that we will have an extra member of staff for the Spring Term working alongside the teaching staff and Senior Leadership Team (SLT) to provide targeted interventions and catch-up tutoring to those pupils who are identified as needing extra support.  We have already done this for some of our English as an Additional Language (EAL) pupils through LCC and the National Tutoring Programme (NTP).  By having a full time member of staff focus on these interventions it gives school a robust and flexible method of providing the support, whilst giving the pupils continuity with the same teacher.


Impact Measure

In order to ascertain the impact of spending on outcomes for children, half termly progress data derived from teacher judgements will be analysed,  as well as a formal mid-year summative assessments, where children's progress and attainment will be measured after completion of tests in core areas: reading, writing and maths.

In addition to this pupil progress meetings will be carried out with all teaching staff to discuss class and individual progress and ascertain impact provision is having on learning.
