COVID-19 Catch-Up Premium
COVID-19 Catch-Up Premium was introduced by the Government to support the most vulnerable and disadvantaged pupils in schools as they catch up on lost learning, caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The allocation to each school is based on £80 per pupil in school. Alston Lane received £15,280 for 2021.22.
How we allocated and spend this funding:
- Early language intervention for the youngest children through the Welcom project.
- The recruitment of an intervention teacher (2.5 days per week).
- School based tuition for children who require support to access age related expectations in reading, writing and mathematics.
