Catch Up and Recovery Premium - Planning for the Whole School
Pilsley Primary School Catch Up Premium 2023-2024
At Pilsley Primary, we operate a 3 tier approach to help our children close the gaps left by previous lock downs as detailed below:
Tier 1 – Teaching (High-quality for all, effective diagnostic assessment, supporting remote learning and focussing on professional development.) Teaching and wholes school strategies (Supporting great teaching, Pupil assessment and feedback and Transition support)
Tier 2 – Targeted academic support (high quality one to one and small group tuition, teaching assistants and targeted support, academic tutoring, planning for pupils with SEND.) Targeted approaches (One to one and small group tuition, Intervention programmes and extended school time)
Tier 3 – Wider strategies (supporting pupils social, emotional and behavioural needs, planning carefully for adopting SEL (social and emotional learning) curriculum, supporting parents with pupils of different ages and successfully implementation in challenging times) Wider strategies (Supporting parent and carers, access to technology and summer support)
It is suggested the a school’s focus should also be split ½ on Tier 1 and a ¼ on Tier 2 and a ¼ on Tier 3, please see the diagram below:
Catch Up Premium
The Government has also allocated funding to each school to support “Catch-up”
This DFE guidance states:
Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous years, in line with the guidance on curriculum expectations for the next academic year.
Catch Up Premium for this school
Our school has been allocated a total of £11,310 for this academic year and this is split between two financial years.
The DFE guidance on catch-up premium references the two school planning documents so we as a school have decided to use the tiers to support our decision-making with respect to how we spend our catch-up premium. The decisions are also guided by the school’s vision and our determination to ensure all our children “catch-up” and that they are nor adversely effected either academically or emotionally by missed schooling. This is outlined in the Catch Up Premium Strategy document.
The diagram below details the additional provision we will be putting in place, which will be funded by our “Catch-up Premium.”
