The government has announced details of funding to support children and young people to catch up following the unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19).  This includes a one-off universal £650 million catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time.

Temple Sowerby CE Primary School was initially awarded £2,960 in catch-up premium funding. A further £2,000 of Recovery Premium was awarded in September 2021. Click here for details of how this money is being spent.

The impact of this programme will be reviewed termly by teaching staff, with interventions and support packages adapted according to end of term assessments and evaluation of children’s ongoing needs. Outcomes will also be reported back to the Full Governing Body on an ongoing basis.
