Catch up Premium at All Saints’
We will spend the Covid-19 Catch-Up Premium on a blended approach of measures:
- Tutors: these will be focused on meeting educational needs of a range of pupils in individual and small group scenarios.
- Teaching Assistants: these will have specific duties to support pupils in class with basic skills such as reading, handwriting and numeracy.
- Resources for pupils and staff to support the infrastructure and delivery of remote learning.
