Catch Up Premium

Catch-Up Premium Funding

Government message

The Secretary of State for Education is providing financial assistance to local authorities for their maintained schools and for pupils that local authorities place in independent special settings, in the form of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) catch-up premium for all schools. This is a continuation of funding that has been provided since April 2021.

Rationale: We plan to use our catch-up premium to raise the attainment of all children primarily in supporting emotional well-being, closing the attainment gap in English and Maths for those children who missed a lot of learning during the two periods of closure in 2020 and 2021.

Catch-up funding will be used to pay for additional support staff time as well as using the school-led tutor funding to pay for teaching hours to provide focused teaching and learning to support language development for our youngest children.
