Catch Up Premium


For the financial year 2021-2022 and for the financial year 2022-2023 we will receive £9k in catch up premium funding.  This funding will be used on qualified tutoring from the National Tutoring Programme and extra teacher support.  See Pupil Premium Strategy Statement above.


We will ensure that baseline and exit data are used in order to assess the effectiveness of the catch up spend.
