Catch-up Premium

The DfE has allocated £650 million to be spent on ensuring all pupils have the chance to catch up and supporting schools to enable them to do so. Whilst principals/headteachers will decide how the money is spent, the Education Endowment Foundation has published guidance on effective interventions to support schools  For pupils with complex needs, schools should spend this funding on catchup support to address their individual needs. There is also an allocation of £350 million for a National Tutoring Programme, intended to deliver proven and successful tuition to the most disadvantaged and vulnerable young people. 

Schools should set out how they will allocate the additional funding to support curriculum recovery this academic year. The EEF guidance suggests a 3-tiered* approach: 

Teaching and whole school strategies  

  • Supporting great teaching  

  • Pupil assessment and feedback  

  • Transition support 

Targeted approaches  

  • One to one and small group tuition  

  • Intervention programmes  

  • Extended school time 

Wider strategies  

  • Supporting parent and carers  

  • Access to technology  

  • Summer support 

  • Catch-up Premium Impact Review 2020 - 2021

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
