Covid Catch-up Premium Report
Due to the impact of COVID 19 on education resulting in a significant gap in progress, all schools have been allocated an additional premium to assist with supporting learning and maintaining effective schools. Our Lady & St Werburgh's, has received £16,800, which is being distributed in 4 payments over the course of the academic year.
The main challenge facing the school at this time is the removal of any flexibility in staffing, as the need to maintain Covid secure bubbles is paramount. This has resulted in a shortfall of staffing across the school, most notably in Key Stage 2, which is where the greatest area of need is most present and as such the significant majority of premium is being used to fund a temporary LSA post.
