COVID-19 Catch-up Premium

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) catch-up premium is government funding provided to schools in order to help support children and young people to catch up on missed education due to school closure.

Funding is provided for the academic year 2020-2021 to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all students make up for lost teaching time. This funding is especially important for the most vulnerable and those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
