COVID-19 Catch Up Premium Funding - We are committed to providing the highest quality education for all our chidlren regardless of background or barrier to learning in all aspects of school life.  "Children from disadvantaged backgrounds are likely to have been more affected particularly severly by closures and may need more support to return to school and settle back into school life.  Whilst all pupils will benefit from the EEF recommnedations, it is likely that some forms of support will be particularly beneficial to disadvantaged". 

Covid-19 Support Guide for Schools - June 2020.  Great teaching is the most important lever schools have to improve outcomes for their pupils.  Every pupil will have been affected differently by Covid-19.  Enabling teachers to assess pupils' wellbeing and learning needs is likely to make it easier for teachers and other school staff to provudie effective support.
