In February 2021, the government announced a recovery premium as part of its package of funding to support education recovery following the COVID pandemic. The recovery premium funding is additional funding for eligible schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year. It is based on pupil premium eligibility to provide further support to disadvantaged pupils. This funding will help our school to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting disadvantaged pupils. Information about our use of Recovery Premium is displayed alongside our Pupil Premium Strategy.
In 2021-2022 our recovery premium was linked with our Pupil Premium funding to reduce barriers to learning, provide quality first teaching and pupil/family support. In this academic year (2022-2023) we aim to use the funding to enhance our package of support for our children. This involves intensive training packages for our Learning Mentor to ensure the 1-1 and small group support we offer is of a high standard and is evidence based. We also aim to use the recovery and pupil premium funding to provide staff training which enhances their skills in the classroom and as leaders of curriculum areas. This is to ensure that our curriculum offer is as good as it can be.
