Following the Covid-19 pandemic and national school closures, the government announced an additional catch up/ recovery funding which has been allocated to schools.
Recovery funding and school led tutoring grant.
The school-led tutoring grant is to support disadvantaged pupils in catch-up learning and schools will select the pupils in need of support. This will focus on providing tuition to pupils eligible for pupil premium but also includes pupils with other types of disadvantage or additional needs. This includes special educational needs and disability (SEND), children who have a social worker, previously looked-after children, young carers and other vulnerable pupils. However, if a school feels that a pupil does not fall into these categories would benefit from catch-up tutoring, the funding can be used to provide this.
The school will use the grants to provide small group school-led tutoring to identified pupils in need of additional support and catch up. It is led by staff within school who are teachers or trained tutors. The focus for 2022-2023 is Year 2 maths. Further information, including funding allocations can be found in the Pupil Premium Strategy below.
