Covid Catch-Up Premium

In June, the Government announced a £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up.  Further guidance has now been released and can be viewed at This means The Leys Primary School was in receipt of £33,250 in 2020-21 to help support our pupils.

The recovery premium funding allocation this academic  year (2021-22) is approximately £17,255 and 12,960 (provisional) for School-led Tutoring  for the Autumn term  which is used to support our pupils.  Please see the Pupil Premium Strategy for more information on how this is being spent.

Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances. To support schools to make the best use of this funding, the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has published a support guide for schools with evidence-based approaches to catch up for all pupils. We have considered this when planning our approach for the use of this funding.
