Catch up Premium
At Westleigh Methodist Primary School we have been provided with one-off universal catch up premium funding from the government to support the children's education during this academic year. It will be used systematicaly and effectively to support all pupils in their efforts to catch up any lost learning. This will ensure that we provide all children with the opportunity to meet the curriculum expectations for the next academic year.
Our Catch-Up Premium strategy has been steered by the Education Endowment guide, ‘The EEF Guide to Supporting School Planning: A Tiered Approach to 2021’. This EEF Guide to Supporting School Planning aims to support school leaders with their planning for the year 2021. It proposes a tiered model that focus upon high quality teaching, targeted academic support and wider strategies to aid school leaders’ existing school improvement planning efforts. The DFE’s catch-up programmes guidance has also been reviewed alongside.
Crucially, this guide recommends that schools prioritise a small number of approaches best suited to their context. Less, implemented properly, is more.
