OPEN MORNING

Our next parents’ open morning will be held on Monday 7 February at 9.30am.  Please contact khayward@linksec.org.uk to book your place.      In order to limit numbers visiting the school, we would ask that only one person per household attends.

COVID-19 catch-up premium

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) catch-up premium grant was introduced in July 2020 and is allocated to schools to support pupils by tailoring the use of the funding to identified gaps to attainment as a result of school closures due to Covid-19. It is for the school to determine how best to use the funding.

For the academic year (2020-21), we must publish our Coronavirus (COVID-19) catch-up premium grant strategy setting out:

  • The amount of the school’s Covid-19 catch-up premium grant allocation
  • A summary of the main barriers to educational achievement faced by the school
  • How the Covid-19 catch-up premium grant allocation is to be spent to address those barriers and the reasons for that approach
  • How the school is to measure the impact and effect of its expenditure of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) catch-up premium grant allocation
  • The date of the school’s next review of its Covid-19 catch-up premium grant strategy

The Department for Education requires us to provide this information, alongside the details of our Pupil Premium funding and spending in the document below:
