Catch up Strategy

Following the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent closure of schools, the government issued an amount of catch-up funding to all schools to support with closing gaps in learning. The amount of funding allocated is based on pupil numbers and is paid over two financial years. 

At Burley Oaks Primary School we are receiving: £32,880. 

In deciding how to allocate and spend our money, we have considered our pupils, their response to remote learning, parent feedback, strategies that have worked in the past and a wide range of assessment information. We have also used the government recommended, 'COVID-19 Support Guide for Schools' published by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) to identify the best strategies, based on long term research, that will enable us to achieve the most positive outcomes.
