In June a £1 billion fun for education was announced by the government. The government Covid-19 catch up Premium has been given to schools to mitigae the effects of the unique disruption caused by Covid-19. The grant is only available for the academic year 2020-2021.
The catch-up premium is funded on a per pupil basis at £80 per pupil. This was based on the previous year’s census and will does not include Nursery children. This means at Oxford Gardens, we have received £22,960. The spending of this money is down to schools to allocate as they see best. Please see the report below to explain how we have chosen to spend the premium at Oxford Gardens.
