In the summer of 2020, the government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up lost time after school closure. This is especially important for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds. This funding includes:

  • a one-off universal £650 million catch up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time
  • a £350 million National Tutoring Programme to provide additional, targeted support for those children and young people who need the most help, which includes:
  • a schools programme for 5 to 16-year-olds – for more information, see the National Tutoring Programme FAQs

At Chellaston Junior School, we have been allocated £40,560 and we are using this funding to help pupils to ‘catch-up’ on lost learning through:

  • purchasing online resources to support Phonics, Maths and Reading
  • delivering small group tutoring in Reading, Maths and Phonics
  • employing a Teaching Assistant for afternoons to deliver intervention programmes based on the gaps idetified through standardised testing
  • purchasing iPads to increase access to techonlogy
