The Government have announced additional funding to ‘catch-up’ any students detrimentally affected by Academy closures and the impact of Covid-19. The focus will be on catching up on lost teaching, ensuring students are at least in line with curriculum expectations and that they make progress in line with Academy targets. We have reviewed the Education Endowment Foundation – Covid-19 Support Guide for Schools to allocate the catch-up premium effectively. The proposed Covid catch-up budget has been analysed and signed off by the Academy’s Governing body. The impact will be monitored and reviewed throughout the year by the Governing Body and Academies Director.
