Guidance

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 aggregate impact of lost time in education will be substantial, and the scale of our response must match the scale of the challenge.

Schools’ allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil in years’ reception through to 11 in two instalments, one this financial year and a second in the next financial year.

As the catch-up premium has been designed to mitigate the effects of the unique disruption caused by coronavirus (COVID-19), the grant will only be available for the 2020 to 2021 academic year. It will not be added to schools’ baselines in calculating future years’ funding allocations.

strategy statement

To support schools to make the best use of this funding, the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has published a coronavirus (COVID-19) support guide for schools with evidence-based approaches to catch up for all pupils. Southfields Community Primary School has used this document to aid the direction of our additional funding in the most effective way.

The EEF advises the following (summary form):

 Teaching and whole school strategies

·       Supporting great teaching

·       Pupil assessment and feedback

·     Transition support

 Targeted approaches

·       One to one and small group tuition

·     Intervention programmes

 Wider strategies

·       Supporting parent and carers

·       Access to technology

Teaching

Great teaching is the most important lever schools have to improve outcomes for their pupils and this will be developed as part of the ‘Catch-up Premium Strategy’.

Targeted Academic Support

There is extensive evidence supporting the impact of high-quality one to one or group tuition as a catch-up strategy. Tuition delivered by qualified teachers is likely to have the biggest impact. This is a strategy that Southfields will use.

Wider Support

Schools have provided extensive pastoral support to pupils and families during the pandemic. Additional support in the new school year will focus on providing regular and supportive communications with parent, especially to increase attendance and engagement with learning – this
will be supported through the ‘Catch-up Premium Strategy’.

What will Southfields do?

Southfields Community Primary School will use this funding for specific activities to support our pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the guidance on curriculum expectations for the next academic year. Schools, like Southfields, have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances.

Barriers to learning

barriers to future attainment

Curriculum
Gaps

As a result of closures and remote learning, gaps in the curriculum have emerged and have been identified by each Subject Leader. These gaps must be minimised through effective use of the Catch-up Premium and other school strategies.

Remote Learning

All pupils were provided with access to remote learning during the period of school closure. In order for us to maintain the effectiveness of this, we must ensure that our provision continues to meet expectations.  

Delivering High Quality Teaching

Due to school closures and mixed engagement with remote learning, gaps have emerged in children’s knowledge and skills. This picture is mixed, and teaching staff will need support to develop strategies in identifying these and rapidly filling them.   

Attendance

Attendance for some pupils has been affected due to long periods of isolation within families. Some have been affected by parental anxiety leading to increased absences.

Wellbeing – pupils

The period of school closures and adaptation to the school routines and environment have had, in some cases, a negative impact on the wellbeing of pupils.

Wellbeing – Families / Wider Community

 Some of our families due to ill health or other external factors such as social deprivation have faced challenges adopting consistent routines whilst working from home impacting on pupils being able to focus on their schooling. These families receive support from external agencies as well as our Pastoral Team and Family
Support Workers.

Engagement

Moving to online and ‘virtual’ processes for events such as parents evenings, will present a challenge in maintaining engagement with our community.  

EAL

More than 69% of pupils have English as an additional language. Transience, mobility Issues and gaps in learning have increased during lockdowns as many children converse in their home language outside of school, which increased during long periods of lockdown resulting in a reversal of progress made for some children. Access to English at home, including books, is limited. Some pupils returned to home countries during lockdown and have missed more time through isolation upon return. Gaps have been identified both socially and
academically.

Vulnerable Families

For some of our pupils and families there is a lack of resilience and aspiration with little importance placed on missed learning. Children (and their families) receive support from our Pastoral Team which include Family Support
Workers and a Learning Mentor who work alongside external agencies. These interventions were limited during lockdown and this has further impacted on existing identified gaps.

Teaching and learning lead (DHT) will take
responsibility for monitoring the provision alongside the HT. 72 children in KS1 to be supported by Tutors with Maths over
the Spring Term.  These children will
be placed into groups of 1:2 or 1:3 and receive 11 – 15hours tuition each
depending on need.

The profile of gaps in attainment will be
carefully identified
using
Spring term data,
ensuring that the pupils objectives are
tightly focused. 

Tutors will regularly liaise with teachers
about the needs of each child and
report to teachers on the progress children are making.

Data collected at the end of the
intervention will be used to gauge the effectiveness of the intervention and
to help set further next steps.

Supporting parents and carers – particularly
vulnerable families – with access to home learning.

 

Children will have greater opportunities to access learning at home. 

Home-learning opportunities will not always require parents to engage with the activities, giving children greater independence.

 

Supporting parents and carers with access to
materials and resources will enable them to assist in their children’s learning. The provision of resources that promote independence will reduce the need for parents / carers to continually support their children (particularly if they are unable to do so).
