Catch up premium: coronavirus (COVID-19)

In June 2020 the government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up on missed learning caused by coronavirus (COVID19). This is especially important for the most vulnerable pupils and pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds who we know have been most affected.

How much the school has received?

  • Autumn 2020 – £2,680
  • Spring 2021 – £3,900

How we intend to spend this grant?

Within Standish Lower Ground St Anne’s CE Primary School we have identified specific cohort with the most immediate need. Working within our Covid-19 Risk Assessment we intend to use this funding to release our HLTA, by providing TA support in other classes. She will provide additional small group teaching, focusing on maths and English, for our Year 5 and 6 children. This will enable her to remain within this double bubble, whilst having a teaching base in the school hall, limiting virus spread throughout the school.

How will this spending effect the educational attainment of our pupils?

Our HLTA, is highly experienced and attends all up to date training and meetings regarding English and maths in our school. Working with the class teachers she will support small groups of upper KS2 children and help them to make speedy progress within these key areas of the curriculum.
