Catch Up and Remote Learning
Catch Up funding
Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of the coronavirus (COVID 19) pandemic. Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged background will be amongst the hardest hit. The aggregate impact of lost time in education will be substantial, and the scale of our response must match the scale of the challenge.
Returning to normal educational routines as quickly as possible will be critical to our recovery.
The Government has announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up. This includes a one-off universal £650 million catch up premium for the 2020-21 academic year to ensure schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time.
Although all children have had their education disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, it is likely that the disadvantaged and vulnerable groups will have been the hardest hit. That is why, alongside the universal catch-up premium, the government are launching a £350 million National Tutoring Programme to provide additional, targeted support for those children and young people who need the most help.
Remote learning for all children is accessed through Class Dojo. Please contact your child's class teacher or the school office if you are not able to access it.
We are happy to print all resources for collection on Friday, ready for the following week. Please speak to your child's class teacher if you would like a pack to be made up.
