COVID 19 Catch-Up

Strategy Statement

Alongside all schools, Blue Coat faces a challenge in reintroducing pupils after a significant period of time away from school.  The DfE has assisted schools by allocating money to ensure an effective transition back to school, support for individual and group catch-up as well as support for parents.  All children, including our most vulnerable learners, will need to be helped academically and emotionally in order for them to thrive at school.

No COVID 19 Catch-up funding received in 2020/21 has been carried foreword to the new financial school year 2022/23.
