Purpose of the fund
As a result of COVID-19 young people across the country have experienced an unprecedented disruption to their education. Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will have had significant impact to both their education and wellbeing. The funding will allow schools to return to normal educational routines as quickly as possible and allows those hardest hit to catch-up. Schools allocations has been calculated on a per pupil basis and will be used to support students to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the guidance on curriculum expectations for the next academic year.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) catch-up premium is to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time. The funding provided is £240 per pupil.
Burnside Secondary remained open for the duration of the COVID lockdowns as well as providing online learning for students unable to access school based learning.
