IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Arrangments for March 2021

COVID-19 Catch Up Premium Report

Since our school gets the coronavirus (COVID-19) catch-up premium grant in, we should publish details of:

  • how it is intended that the grant will be spent
  • how the effect of this expenditure on the educational attainment of those pupils at the school will be assessed
