Covid-19 Recovery Premium

Accountability and Monitoring


  • Can we evidence that the money we have spent is supporting our pupils to get back on track as soon as possible, and definitely by the summer term?
  • Do our governors have oversight of our catch-up plan priorities and ongoing impact?
  • Do our parents understand how our catch-up plan will support their children?
  • What can our Coronavirus (COVID-19) Catch-Up Premium be spent on?

These are the areas that Ofsted will explore as part of their non-graded and routine inspections.

How Can Juniper Help?

Coaching Conversations: Our hour-long structured conversations for school leaders, or senior leadership teams, will help you reflect on your use of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Catch-Up Premium. The conversation will consider both strategic and practical implications of using this additional funding to help your pupils catch up for lost learning. These conversations can be a one-off or a series depending on the needs of your school and are delivered remotely using Microsoft Teams.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Catch-Up Premium Review: Led by one of our experienced Education Advisers and following a similar format to a Pupil Premium Grant Review, our Coronavirus (COVID-19) Catch-Up Premium Review will evaluate your plans, spend, communication and impact of this additional funding to provide assurance that it is being been spent in line with DfE guidance. The reviews can be delivered in-school or remotely using Microsoft Teams.

For more information, and to book a conversation or review, contact our Teaching and Learning team to discuss your requirements.
