|Use of Funds||EEF Recommendations|
Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the guidance on curriculum expectations for the next academic year.
Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances.
To support schools to make the best use of this funding, the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has published a coronavirus (COVID-19) support guide for schools with evidence-based approaches to catch up for all students. Schools should use this document to help them direct their additional funding in the most effective way.
The EEF advises the following:
Teaching and whole school strategies
· Supporting great teaching
· Pupil assessment and feedback
· One to one and small group tuition
· Intervention programmes
· Extended school time
· Supporting parent and carers
· Access to technology
