COVID-19 Catch-up Premium
What catch-up funding is for?
The government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up lost time after school closure. This is especially important for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds. This funding includes:
- a one-off universal £650 million catch up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time
- a £350 million National Tutoring Programme to provide additional, targeted support for those children and young people who need the most help, which includes:
School allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis.
Mainstream schools will get £80 for each pupil in from reception to year 11 inclusive.
How have we used our funding?
Below is a link to our Catch-up Funding Plan:
As we haven’t used all of our 2020/2021 funding before the 31st August 2021, we will be carrying forward £2,160 to 2021/2022, to continue with the targeted support with support staff undertaking additional interventions as detailed in Priority 2 of our plan.
