In February 2021, the government announced a recovery premium as part of its package of funding to support education recovery. This built upon the Catch-up funding made available to schools in Autumn 2020.
The recovery premium provides additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year. Building on the pupil premium, this funding will help schools to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting disadvantaged pupils.
As an Academy and a Trust, we are working tirelessly to ensure children 'Catch-up and Keep-up'. Recognising that learning was lost for many children over the last 2 years, we reviewed our curriculum to ensure teachers were aware of gaps in children's learning and built them into their teaching sequences.
We strategically planned the spending of the recovery funding to support children across school to compliment our quality first curriculum.
