Lionel Primary School

Working together to provide an educational environment that inspires, challenges and nurtures each child.

COVID-19 Catch up Premium


At Lionel Primary School we have used the additional money to provide curriculum resources and additional staffing in order to recover lost learning and to support children's mental health and well being.

The school received premium funded on a per pupil basis at £80 per pupil. This money was spent focusing our resources on early reading and phonics and maths skills.  We employed an additional member of teaching staff 3 days per week to provide additional aupport in this area.  We also provided additional maths online tutoring via 3rd Space Learning. In addition we purchased additional reading resources to support children where necessary.

Assessment outcomes demonstrated that the focus children had made accelerated progress.  Those children who have not caught up sufficiently wil continue to receive targetted interventions.
