Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will be among those hardest hit.
The school has developed a catch-up plan using published research on evidence-based approaches to support its development. This plan also supports the current school development priorities as identified through school evaluation:
Catch-up premium: What is it?
The government is providing funding to cover a one-off universal catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year.
It aims to support pupils to catch up for lost learning so schools can meet the curriculum expectations for the next academic year.
Longford Primary Academy has been allocated £20,640 which will be received in 3 installments over the course of the academic year.
