Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will be among those hardest hit. The aggregate impact of lost time in education will be substantial, and the scale of our
response must match the scale of the challenge.
The government has allocated schools with additional funding to support.
In the academic year 2020-2021, schools’ allocations were calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil.
Below is the school’s catch up plan and how we utilised this additional funding.
For the academic year 2021-2022, the government have announced the recovery premium funding. This is additional funding for eligible schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year. It is based on pupil premium eligibility to provide further support to disadvantaged pupils. How this money will be spent this year, is outlined in our Pupil Premium Strategy, which can be found below.
