COVID-19 Catch-Up Premium

Funding and Payment

The government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up lost time after school closures.  This being especially important for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds.

School funding allocations have been calculated on a per pupil basis.  Mainstream schools get £80 for each pupil from reception to year 11 inclusive, funding paid in three tranches:-

  • Autumn 2020

  • Early 2021 - based on updated pupil and place data.  This payment will also take account of the initial part payment made in Autumn 2020 so that schools will receive a total of £46.67 per pupil.

  • Summer 2021 term - a further £33.33 per pupil

Use of Funds

Similar to the Pupil Premium, schools are to use the sum as a single total even though funding is calculated on a per pupil or per place basis.

  • Funding to be used for specific activities to support pupils catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the curriculum expectations for the next academic year.

  • Schools can use this funding in a way that suits their cohort and circumstances and are expected to use it for specific activities to help pupils catch up on missed education.
