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 will receive £15,280 for 2020.21.
It is our intention to spend this funding on:
- Early language intervention for the youngest children through the Nuffield Early Language Intervention Project (NELI)
- Speech and Language support throughout school, delivered by an ELKLAN trained Teaching Assistant
- One to one tuition, accessed through the Government's National Tuition scheme
- Enhanced technology for disadvantaged children without access to suitable Internet enabled devices at home.
