Covid-19 Catch-up Premium

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. This equates to the school receiving approximately £80 per child that can be spent on helping children catch up on lost learning due to partial school closures due to COVID-19.
