Following the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent closure of schools, the government issued an amount of catch-up funding to all schools to support with closing gaps in learning. The amount of funding allocated is based on pupil numbers and is paid over two financial years.
At Broomfield Primary School we have considered many factors when deciding how to allocate and spend our money. We have also used the government recommended, ‘COVID-19 Support Guide for Schools’ published by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) to identify the best strategies, based on long term research, that will enable us to achieve the most positive outcomes. We believe that our staff know our children best and we have prioritised catch-up provision to be delivered by them in the first instance.
