Catch Up Premium
Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education due to the coronavirus (COVID-19)
pandemic. We predict that those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will be among those hardest hit. The aggregate impact of lost
time in education will be substantial, and the scale of our response must match the scale of the challenge.
Schools’ allocations of catch-up funding will be calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil in
years reception through to 11.
As the catch-up premium has been designed to mitigate the effects of the unique disruption caused by coronavirus (COVID-19), the grant will only be
available for the 2020 to 2021 academic year. It will not be added to schools’ baselines in calculating future years’ funding allocations
