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 (EEF) 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.

The purpose of this document is to set out how we will allocate the additional funding to support curriculum recovery this academic year.

The EEF guidance suggests strategies should be grouped into three categories as follows:

Overall strategy area Specific details
Teaching and whole school strategies Supporting high-quality teaching for all
Ensuring effective diagnostic assessment and feedback
Supporting remote learning
Focusing on professional development
Targeted approaches One to one and small group tuition
Teaching Assistants and targeted support
Intervention programmes

Wider strategies Communicating with and supporting parents and carers
