What catch-up funding is for
The government has provided additional funding in the 2021 to 2022 academic year to support schools with education recovery following COVID-19. This funding is based on pupil premium eligibility to provide further support to disadvantaged pupils.
How we will spend the allocated funding:
For more information on how the catch-up funding will be spent at Hareclive E-ACT Academy in 2021-2022 and how it was spent in 2020-2021 please refer to the following documents:
How we measure impact:
Class teachers, phase leads, the SENDCo and the Inclusion Team work together, along with the Senior Leadership Team, to identify the barriers to learning and what the school can do to enhance children’s learning journey through the school year and beyond. This is monitored every 2 terms with both formative and summative assessment information, which is also shared with parent/carers during parent/carer meetings. At the end of the school year, interventions culminate in a final data drop, informing teachers, learning support assistants and the Senior Leadership Team about the success of this additional support and the best step forward for the children in the year ahead.
The effectiveness of the interventions funded by the COVID-19 catch up premium is looked at in detail and actions are drawn up to help accelerate progress. This cycle ensures that the impact of the funding is carefully monitored so that the premium is effective.
