COVID Catch-up Premium


catch-up premium - academic year 2020-21 

Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). Schools have been allocated funding to mitigate this.  It has been calculated based on a figure of £80 per pupil in the school from Reception through to Year 6, for the 2020-2021 academic year.  

At Sebert Wood, we have a ‘catch-up’ plan centred on supporting great teaching, focused intervention programmes and additional targeted one-to-one or very small group tuition.  We have also included support for the mental health and well-being of our pupils are part of the planned provision. 

The plan was in place in September but has been reviewed to take into account the January 2021 lockdown. We will continue to review the plan and adjust provision as part of ongoing assessments and needs analyses.
