Catch Up Premium

Our ‘Emerging Stronger’ response to Covid-19 has been carefully and extensively planned. A key part of this response has been the creation of a detailed and focused ‘Accelerated Learning’ plan. The plan sets out our strategies to ensure that the Covid-19 interruption does not impact on students reaching their academic and personal potential. In the table below you can see a streamlined summary of our accelerated learning plan.

How will the grant be spent? How will we assess the impact of the grant on educational attainment?

Accelerated Learning - Powered by Digital Technology

This has included the following investment: Google Enterprise Education G-Suite, staff devices, student devices, staff training, content development (eg Digital Hub) safety software and a range of equipment (eg charging and storage solution)
