Catch Up Premium

Following school closure in March 2020, the Government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up. This included 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.

The universal catch-up premium funding is available for all state-funded mainstream and special schools, and alternative provision.

Funding has been allocated on a per pupil basis, providing the equivalent of £80 for each pupil in years reception through to 6.

 

Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances.
