COVID-19 Catch-up Premium

What is the COVID-19 Catch Up Premium?

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.

 

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.

 

For further information, please visit: Catch Up Premium

 

How is the money going to be spent?

Schools are able to use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the curriculum expectations for the next academic year in actions for schools during the coronavirus outbreak.

While schools can use their funding in a way that suits their cohort and circumstances, they are expected to use this funding for specific activities which will help pupils catch up on missed education.
