Barnett Wood Infant School

COVID Catch Up Premium

Coronavirus (COVID-19) catch-up premium 2020 - 2021

This academic year, we are receiving the coronavirus (COVID-19) catch-up premium grant.
At Barnett Wood, it was decided that the grant would be spent on two additional part-time LSAs who will support the learning of children across the school, helping them to catch up on ‘lost learning’.
At the start of the school year, in September, teachers assessed where the children were in terms of their learning in reading, writing, phonics and maths. The newly appointed LSAs are working with groups of children, as well as individuals, to address the gaps. The children will be assessed again at the end of the time of additional support in order to measure progress.
