COVID-19 Catch-up Premium

In Summer 2020 the government announced that they would provide a one-off premium fund to schools in order to support students to catch-up on missed learning that has been caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Schools have now been given the opportunity to spread their interventions over two years to best support the progress and well-being of the students in their community.

At Copthall, we are using our premium to drive our ‘Back on Track’ plan which is attached below and which is designed to support students with their learning and well-being as we over-come the challenges that the pandemic has created. The Back on Track plan is regularly reviewed and revised to ensure that it is meeting the needs of our school community. Full details of the national expectations for the catch-up premium can be found on here: Catch-up Premium.

As part of our action plan, targeted students at Copthall have been participating in small group tutoring sessions via the National Tutoring Programme. We have been working with Mytutor to support students English and Maths skills and over the next year we will continue to offer small-group tutoring for a range of students across the school.

Should you have any questions about the school’s use of the Catch-up Premium, please contact Mr Beavis our Deputy Headteacher (Academic) by email at
