The DFE has provided grant funding to schools to provide additional tuition for some pupils whose achievement slowed as a result of Coronavirus lockdowns. This is particularly targeted at support for disadvantaged pupils, but can be used for any pupil who would benefit. We receive two grants – the Recovery Premium Grant, and the School Led Tutoring grant. In total, these amount to £3,415 in the academic year 2021 – 22.
We have chosen to spend the funding on small group (1:2) tuition in English and Maths for identified pupils in KS2. This is done through school-led tutoring, using tutors who are appropriately qualified and experienced, and are evidenced to make a difference to children’s learning progress.

We believe that this represents the best way to target gaps in learning that have emerged for individual children to ensure that they make the very best progress in our school.
In the event of school closure, we will endeavour to deliver our catch-up activities in line with our remote learning policy: Remote Learning Policy
