Covid-19 Recovery Premium


“High-quality teaching should reduce the need for extra support, but it is likely that some pupils will require high quality, structured, targeted interventions to make progress … carefully targeted through identification and assessment of need.”

EEF, 2020


  • How are we planning for and providing high quality, structured, targeted interventions to carefully identified pupils?
  • Are intervention sessions short, regular and time-limited?
  • Are interventions or tutoring delivered by well-trained staff?
  • Are interventions or tutoring focused on specific identified needs?
  • Are connections between the out-of-class learning in the interventions or tutor sessions and classroom teaching clear?
