Coronavirus Catch-up Funding
Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). The government has announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up. This 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. School allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil from Year R through to Year 11.
Fleet Infant School has decided to use the government's catch up funding to employ additional staff in KS1 to support learning in the classroom.
Assessment of the impact of this extra support will be through Pupil Progress Meetings, December and February data snapshots and final assessments at the end of the year, in both Year 1 and Year 2 (SATS). This evaluation and impact will be shared with the Governing Body at regular points throughout the year.
