COVID-19 Catch-up Premium

School closures as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic had a great impact on our pupils' learning and education. In June 2020 the UK government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up on missed learning.

Our school allocation has been calculated on a per pupil basis, providing us with a total of £80 for each pupil in years reception through to Year 6.  For the academic year 2020-2021 Princess May Primary School received £23,520 Catch Up Premium.

The overall aims of the expenditure of the catch-up premium strategy are: 

  • To reduce the attainment gap between our disadvantaged pupils and their peers
  • To raise the attainment of all pupils
  • To close the gap created by COVID-19 school closures, in line with the curriculum expectations for the next academic year
  • To ensure the wellbeing of all pupils
