Covid Catch Up Funding

Covid 19 Catch Up Premium


The government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up lost time after school closure. This is especially important for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds. This funding includes:


  • a one-off universal £650 million catch up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time


Funding allocations


  • School allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis.
  • Mainstream school will get £80 for each pupil in from reception to year 11 inclusive.
  • Special, AP and hospital schools will get £240 for each place for the 2020 to 2021 academic year.


New Silksworth Academy allocation and proposed usage of the premium is on the attached document.
