COVID-19 Catch-up Premium Report

In June 2020, the government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up on missed learning caused by coronavirus (Covid-19). This has been especially important for the most vulnerable pupils and pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds. The 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 missed learning.

Funding was calculated on a per pupil basis, with schools receiving £80 for each pupil from reception to Year 11 inclusive, using headcounts from the October 2020 census.

Please see our COVID-19 Catch-Up Premium Report for a summary of how we used our funding and our strategy going forward.
