Coronavirus Catch-Up Premium 2020-21  

The Government has allocated catch-up premium funding for each school to support a range of interventions aimed at bridging any gap in attainment that may have resulted from the 2020 lockdown from April to September. The funding is based on £80 per pupil for all pupils in years from reception through to Year 11.  This catch-up premium includes the Literacy and Numeracy catch up funding, as described above, that was previously a separate and distinct funding stream.  ‘Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances’ and this includes ensuring that each school is able to deliver remote learning be that virtually or through paper resources.
