The Government has recognised that “Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19)" and have allocated funding to address this.
The Phoenix Primary School and Nursery have been allocated a total of £45,600.
The funding can be used for specific activities to support pupils to catch up for lost teaching during lockdown and schools have the flexibility to spend this funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances.
At The Phoenix Primary School, we have allocated the funding in the following ways:
Tutoring/ Personalised intervention cost for teachers
Year groups 1-6 class teachers providing a range of weekly after-school provision (45 minutes/ 1 hour) and/or daily intervention in English and Maths
Contribution to supply teacher costs
Part-time supply teacher employed to allow for additional provision within the school day
Summer House Learning Bases
Provision made for additional learning bases in the outdoor areas
Books to support tuition sessions
How the effect of this expenditure on the educational attainment of pupils at the school will be assessed:
- Progress within year groups will be assessed, analysed and reviewed half-termly
- Data will be used to inform further areas for development, where needed groups will be reviewed and updated
