You may be aware that some children have been invited to take part in the Catch-Up Tutoring Programme. The Government has allocated a small pot of money to each school to provide additional support for pupils. The aim of the programme is to identify any gaps in learning due to school closure and address this with small group or one to one tuition.
This is not a school place and it is not open to all pupils.
This term we have prioritised Year 5 and Year 6 pupils. Children will be allocated 2 hours of tuition each week initially for a 3 week period. Progress of pupils will be reviewed after half term and places will then be allocated to new groups of children.
Over the term we hope to offer additional support to all Year 5 and Year 6 children who we feel will benefit. However, as the advantage of this programme is that children get intense support in very small groups, we cannot accommodate all pupils in Year 5 and Year 6 at one time.
We have prioritised a group of children using a range of factors and looking at all abilities. This is exactly the same sort of process that we use to identify groups of children for additional intervention, in a normal school day.
If you have any concerns about your child please contact your child’s class teacher by email or Seesaw. If you would like to discuss the tutoring programme please email the school firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me directly email@example.com.
