St Mary's Catch Up Strategy Statement 2020 - 2021

 

To enable schools to address learning lost during lockdown the government have given every school extra funding to support the catch up of children's learning.

Having considered where the main gaps are at St Mary's we have put together a 'Catch Up' Strategy which we will be using from Term 2. We have combined the catch up funding with pupil premium funding as part of the strategy.
