Catch up funding
Due to COVID-19 there was a national lockdown in March 2020 and subsequent closure of schools to all but the vulnerable children and the children of critical workers. When schools reopened to all pupils in September 2020, the Government provided a grant to enable schools to 'catch up' pupils to the expected level. Schools were required to complete a catch up plan.
The catch up plan demonstrates the how the school intends to spend the money to address any learning gaps and support children in returning to the academic expected levels.
