Covid Catch-Up Grant

The school has received money from the DfE to support pupils requiring additional support due to the pandemic and closure of schools. We are maintaining assessment using the data before school closed as a benchmark and running regular tests and hot and cold tasks to ensure pupils are supported and closely monitored. We have invested the money in webcams to ensure that the best possible face-to-face learning can take place for pupils working from home, have run a well-being and self-esteem course offered by NMPAT and have tutoring in place to support pupils on a short-term basis to fill in any gaps caused by the absence. Our quality first teaching also revisits areas missed during the lockdown and teaching assistant interventions are also in place to support the children in school.
