Catch Up Programme
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 the hardest hit. The impact of lost time in education will be substantial, and the scale of our response must match the scale of the challenge. Primary schools have been allocated £80 per pupil for children in Reception through to Y6 to mitigate these effects for the academic year 2020/21. DfE guidance states that schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months. Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances.
At Windhill21 we want our children to flourish and to gain every opportunity to live fulfilled lives. We are committed to providing the highest quality education for all our children regardless of background or barrier to learning in all aspect of school life.
