COVID-19 Catch Up Premium


The government has awarded £80 per pupil for Years 7-11, which equates to £112,000 based on a population of 1400 students “to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time.” The government has also stated that it “is likely that disadvantaged and vulnerable groups will have been hardest hit and alongside the universal catch-up premium, there will be a £350 million National Tutoring Programme to provide additional, targeted support for those children and young people who need the most help.”


30th September £28,000 (£20 per head); Early 2021 using Oct 2020 census 4-15 headcount £37,338 (£26.67 per head); Summer 2021 £46,662 (£33.33 per head) 

Core Principles

  • The Whitby High School will ensure the funding will be spent on students where: 
  • Diagnostic formative and summative assessments highlight individuals with emerging gaps in learning as a result of lost teaching time
  • The school has requested that students isolate for a period of time due to a confirmed positive Coronavirus case within the community
  • The attendance of students due to their repeated own self-isolation, school refusal or prolonged illness is a cause for concern
  • Pupil Premium students and Looked After Children require further support.

Our Support Plan will follow the guidelines recommended by the EEF in this document.

  1. Teaching and Whole-school Strategies (Supporting great teaching assessment & feedback transition support for Y7).
  2. Targeted Support (1-1 & small group tuition, intervention programmes and extended school).
  3. Wider Strategies (Supporting parents/carers, access to technology, summer support).
It is our intention that the Covid 19 grant of £112,000 will be spent supporting the 3 key pillars above, each with three sub sections. A detailed plan sits behind this overall statement. Many of the initiatives do not require extra funding so this brief outline will focus on our intended expenditure and outline how we will assess the impact of that spending.
