Covid-19 ‘Catch Up’ Premium and Curriculum Expectations 
The DfE has allocated £650 million to be spent on ensuring all pupils have the chance to catch up and supporting schools to enable them to do so. Whilst headteachers will decide how the money is spent, the Education Endowment Foundation has published guidance on effective interventions to support schools. For pupils with complex needs, schools should spend this funding on catch-up support to address their individual needs. There is also an allocation of £350 million for a National Tutoring Programme, intended to deliver proven and successful tuition to the most disadvantaged and vulnerable young people. 
Covid-19 ‘Catch Up’ Intervention Strategy 2020-21 Statement of Intent  
The aim of our ‘Catch Up’ strategy is to ensure that none of our students are ‘left behind’ and that they are all given the opportunity to receive the additional support needed to ‘Catch Up’. We realise that these are unprecedented times and supporting all our students who require ‘Catch Up’ support is a significant undertaking. To achieve this is going to require notable effort, particularly from Middle Leaders. We all share a collective responsibility to ensure that the effects of the Coronavirus do not unfairly disadvantage and they can confidently and successfully move on to the next stages of their education. Upon return to school, it is our ultimate aim that Ivanhoe Students will continue to be well-rounded intellectually, socially and emotionally. We will help them once more to become equipped with the skills and knowledge for life, work and learning – literacy, numeracy, communication, creativity and aesthetic appreciation – in order to able to flourish as they grow into young adults.
