The Coronavirus (Covid-19) catch up premium is intended ‘to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time’.
We have used this funding to expand our remote teaching access and assessment:
- Assessment – we have purchased online versions of our baseline and follow up attainment assessments. This allows us to get a clear idea of pupils’ current functioning, at admission, across a range of Maths and Literacy areas. This helps us set relevant initial learning goals.
- Strengthening the breadth of the curriculum by bringing in ‘Progression lines’ that help to identify pupil starting points across a range of subjects.
