Covid Recovery Premium Report

January 2022



  • DFE have awarded schools Recovery Premium Funding.
  • The recovery premium will be allocated using the same data as the pupil premium.
  • Mainstream schools will get £145 for each eligible pupil in mainstream education.
  • An eligible primary school will not receive less than £2,000.
  • Payments will be sent to local authorities on the last working day in Sep/ Dec/April/ June
  • Schools should spend this premium on evidence-based approaches to support pupils. In line with the Education Endowment Foundation’s pupil premium guide, activities should include those that: support the quality of teaching, such as staff professional development provide targeted academic support, such as tutoring, deal with non-academic barriers to success in school, such as attendance, behaviour and social and emotional support
  • Like the pupil premium, schools can spend the recovery premium on a wider cohort of pupils than those who attract the funding


As a school we will receive £3625. We intend to spend our funding on:

  • Tutoring for Year 5 and currently year 6 pupils for mathematics and reading.
  • Tutor booster sessions for year 5 and 6 pupils
  • Extra reading support in KS1 – 3x morning session for Y1 and 1x morning session for Y2
  • Lexia reading programme for Year 3 and KS1 
  • Reading intervention for KS2 pupils

Desired Impact:

 Target children in KS2 classes will make better than expected progress and achieve ARE in reading and mathematics. The Lexia programme will support the development of fluent readers so that the significant majority of pupils are able to achieve ARE at KS1.

How Impact will be measured:

Summative assessments combined with teacher assessments at the end of Spring 2 will measure the progress and attainment of those children accessing support via the premium.
