For 2020/21 there will be additional funding for Catch-Up Premium and funding for tutorial programmes. The Catch-Up premium is £80 per pupil; this will be allocated in three tranches to schools from Autumn 2. It is for all pupils, particularly disadvantaged, SEND and vulnerable pupils to receive the catch-up support needed to make substantial progress by the end of the academic year.
The priorities and actions of St. Columba’s pupil premium strategy align with those of the Catch-up Premium and these documents should be read together. Below, we have published our COVID catch-up premium strategy outlining priorities and planned allocation of spending. This will be reviewed and updated regularly throughout the year.
