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 2020:
The government is provided funding to cover a one-off universal catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year. It aimed to support pupils to catch up for lost learning so schools can meet the curriculum expectations for the next academic year.
Longford Primary Academy was allocated £20,640 during the 2020-2021 academic year: 2020-2021 catch-up plan
Recovery premium 2021:
The £302m Recovery Premium, which includes a fund to scale up proven approaches, is new one-off funding for state–funded schools in the 2021/22 academic year. Building on the pupil premium, this funding will help schools to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting the most disadvantaged pupils.
Longford Primary Academy has been allocated £11,890 recovery funding. This is reported though our Pupil Premium Strategy.
