In June 2020, the Government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up from the effects of Covid 19 on their education. Further guidance has now been released and can be viewed at
Schools allocations are calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil in Reception through to Year 6.
Currently this funding is providing Maths and English tutoring in small ‘catch up’ groups with highly skilled, qualified teachers. Each child in receipt of this tutoring will receive 15 extra hours of teaching over 15 weeks.
The impact of the expenditure on the educational attainment of pupils at Fairhaven CE VA Primary School will be assessed using:
- Termly assessments
- Ongoing teacher assessment and assessment for learning
