Covid'19 Catch Up Premium
DGSB recognises that the extended periods of national school closure during 2019-20 and 2020-21 will have had a disproportionate impact on our most disadvantaged students and those whose home circumstances do not lend themselves as well to remote teaching and learning.
It is our intention to use the Covid-19 Catch Up Premium to support students in Year 11 but also in other year groups to ensure that opportunities that have been removed due to the pandemic are mitigated against as far as possible.
