Covid Premium

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Catch-up Premium


Belleville received £70,040 in additional funding for specific activities to support their pupils’ education recovery during the Covid-19 pandemic, with a particular focus on disadvantaged and vulnerable children who are likely to have been most affected.

In line with the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) coronavirus support guide for schools, we have used a range of evidence-based approaches to catch up for all children which has been funded in part by the premium.
