Strategy Statement and Aims

At Yealand CE Primary School, we are following EEF guidance and implementing our strategy through a tiered approach.

The EEF recommend targeting support through Quality First Teaching, Targeted Academic Support and Wider Strategies.

Based on Teacher Assessments our priorities are as follows:

  • Writing in KS2
  • Reading in KS1 and lower KS2
  • Phonics in Year 1 & 2.

These priorities will be reviewed throughout the year and adjust accordingly.

Our aims are:

  • To reduce the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers
  • To raise the attainment of all pupils to close the gap created by COVID 19 school closure

School-led Tutoring Grant

School-Led Tutoring was introduced as part of the National Tutoring Programme in 2021/22. Eligible state-funded schools and academy trusts will receive a ring-fenced grant to source their own tutoring provision for disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils who have missed the most education due to COVID-19.

The grant for 2022/23 is expected to cover 75% of the costs of tuition up to an £18 average per pupil per hour unit cost. Schools and academy trusts have the flexibility to manage their own allocation and pay above or below this figure, where necessary, but in all cases will need to contribute 25% of the cost. The DfE expect schools to deliver at least one 15-hour package of tutoring support per pupil.

Yealand CE Primary School has been allocated: school-led tutoring grant of which — was ‘clawed back’ by the DfE.
