by Ryan Molyneux #With pupils set to return to school on March 8th, how can we help them get back on track?{: .center } The Education Endowment Foundation's (EEF) guidance on school catch-up strategies contains recommendations on how schools should spend their catch-up premium. LbQ meets all the EEF guidelines and is perfect to help get your pupils back up and running. We have grouped the recommendations into 5 simple categories. ![alt text](/filestore/BlogImage/32a603d6-cbe3-40fa-98eb-1a77d0efaf8e/01337f83-041e-462f-9c09-d5555e0f7ec7Settle1.jpg "") You can read more about the different categories on our catch-up support pages for [primary](https://www.lbq.org/PrimaryCatchUp?fromsite=true) and [secondary](https://www.lbq.org/SecondaryCatchUp?fromsite=true). But for now, let’s focus on how LbQ can help you and your pupils settle back into school life. ![alt text](/filestore/BlogImage/32a603d6-cbe3-40fa-98eb-1a77d0efaf8e/3b9d31d4-1a0b-4e75-b944-3ee49f08ae9cSettle2.jpg ""){: .center } After such a long and challenging period away from the classroom, the return to school could be disruptive to the wellbeing of pupils, school staff and teachers. Place this alongside the issue of identifying what children have missed out on during this period of disruption, and then, in turn, addressing any gaps in knowledge that they may have, and you have a lot to fit in. Here’s how LbQ can smooth out your return to school. ![alt text](/filestore/BlogImage/32a603d6-cbe3-40fa-98eb-1a77d0efaf8e/369c5775-b6ac-498f-98c3-6fd9d1f0771fLbQ5.jpg ""){: .center } ## Teachers * LbQ’s automatic marking and real-time intervention reduces your workload, which means that you have more time to focus on the areas of concern in the classroom. * LbQ has low-stakes assessment Question Sets that ease the pressure of learning in a potentially overwhelming environment.
