Pupil Premium Strategy 2019/21
Coronavirus (COVID-19) catch-up premium
We will use this funding for specific activities to support children to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with government guidance. We have identified 4 key staff who will deliver bespoke teaching and learning across each key stage. In addition, we were also successful in our expression of interest to participate in the Nuffield Early Language Intervention (NELI)
The Department for Education is working with the EEF and other partners to scale up delivery of the Nuffield Early Language Intervention (NELI). NELI is a high-quality, evidence-based, 20-week intervention designed to improve the language skills of reception age pupils. Several EEF trials have found that NELI improves both children’s oral language and early literacy skills.
We are looking forward to receiving resources and beginning to access online training from the start of the spring term 2021.
Rather than use the NTP to support catch up, we have designated staff per phase who will deliver bespoke and pertinent teaching and learning opportunities to support our children.
We are aware and note the contents of the EEF report (July 21) - Impact of school closures and subsequent support strategies on attainment and socio-emotional wellbeing in Key Stage 1, and will ensure that any child attending Sandal Castle VA Community Primary School will not be disadvantaged due to the impact of COVID-19.
