Catch up funding
The Government has announced that £1 billion of funding has been earmarked for schools to support children and young people to catch up. This includes a one-off universal £650 million catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time due to Covid-19. Although all children have had their education disrupted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, it is likely that disadvantaged and vulnerable groups will have been hardest hit.
We estimate that Merrow will receive £12,000 based on our census return. Below is our action plan for how the funding will be spent. This is a live document and subject to change, if you require more information please contact the school directly. It is reviewed regularly by Governors and the Senior Leadership Team.
