Coronavirus Catch Up Premium

St Elizabeth's has received additional catch-up funding provided by the government in September 2020 to address the learning loss and wider pastoral impact of COVID-19 on pupils at St Elizabeth's.

The expected total is £20,480.

We are using the Catch Up Premium to:

  • Accelerate progress for children in KS2 who demonstrate learning loss in English and Maths. 
  • Accelerate progress for disadvantaged pupils through 1 to 1 tutoring using the National Tutoring Programme.
  • Support children's well-being through ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) and school counsellor sessions.
  • Improve children's ability to self-regulate through implementation of Zones of Regulation in all classes.
  • Ensure that gaps in learning in Maths are closed through pre-teaching.

The impact of our Covid Catch Up Strategy will be assessed through:

  • Assessment of progress towards meeting the agreed National Tutoring Programme targets.
  • End of year assessment data in Reading, Writing and Mathematics.
  • End of ELSA (Emotional Learning Support Assistant) intervention programme evaluations.
  • Questionnaire feedback from children and parents.
