COVID Catch-up premium
What is the ‘catch-up’ premium funding?
The government has announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up. This 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. Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months and have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their children and circumstances.
We have been allocated £19,000 additional ‘catch-up’ funding to support interventions designed to close gaps in attainment for this academic year.
Please see our Catch-up premium plan that will be updated throughout 2020/21.
