From September 2021 a further Recovery premium was awarded to each school.

All pupils completed baseline assessments at the end of September and were assessed again at the beginning of December to identify:

- further areas for improvement across the school

- which pupils need it the most. 

 

In the Autumn 2020 term this funding was used to employ two teachers to give extra support to target groups of pupils:

- in Y3, 4 and 5 for spelling, punctuation and grammar

- Y1 pupils to develop their fine motor skills and build up stamina for writing.

- To purchase resources to enhance writing in Y4 and 5.

- Y5 for spelling, punctuation and grammar

- Y2 pupils for spelling, punctuation and grammar.
