Universal Catch Up Funding

As a school, we have received funding equivalent to £80 per student for the 2020/21 academic year. The government intention is that the funding is spent to achieve the goal of “schools getting back on track and teaching a normal curriculum as quickly as possible” following the period of remote learning between March and July. We have the flexibility to spend this additional money in a way that best meets individual contexts and circumstances but there is a recognition that disadvantaged and vulnerable groups will have been hardest hit by the disruption to their education. As such, intervention strategies will target these students specifically.

 

We are accountable for ensuring the money is spent wisely, based on a clear assessment of need and has a demonstrable impact on addressing learning gaps or pastoral concerns. The effectiveness of the use of funds will be scrutinised by the School Strategy Board (SSB) and GLF Trustees.

 

In consultation with the other secondary schools within the GLF multi-academy trust, we have produced a plan which documents how we intend to spend the universal catch-up fund, a copy of which can be accessed via the school website.
