Catch Up Premium 2020-21
The Government has announced £1 billion of funding to support our children to 'catch up' with the learning that they have lost due to the closure of schools during the pandemic. This includes a one off catch up premium of £80 per pupil in Reception to Year 6 taken from the October 2019 Census data. The first payment was made during the Autumn term, with a further two payments due in the Spring and Summer terms. This funding is to ensure that schools have the additional support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time. Schools have the flexibility to spend it to provide additional, targeted support for those children who need it the most.
