COVID Response and Catch up Funding
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 Seton School we except to receive around £6320 in the academic year 2020-2021.
At Seton School, we have considered the age of our children 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.
Following our Autumn assessments, we have now identified the key priorities for our funding and the detail is published in our Covid Catch-Up Premium Plan, which can be accessed below.
