Children have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of Covid-19. Schools will receive a sum of money, equivalent to £80 per pupil, for specific activities to support children to catch up for lost teaching time in the previous months and mitigate the effects of the disruption. To support schools to make the best use of this additional funding, the Education Endowment Foundation has published a Covid-19 support guide for schools. https://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/covid-19-resources/national-tutoring-programme/covid-19-support-guide-for-schools/#nav-covid-19-support-guide-for-schools1
Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their pupils and circumstances.
