Catch Up Premium: Coronavirus

2021 / 2022

The government has announced a one-off recovery premium as part of its package of funding to support education recovery. The Recovery Premium provides additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year. Building on the Pupil Premium, this funding will help schools to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting disadvantaged pupils.

2020 / 2021 

The government announced 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 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
  • a National Tutoring Programme to provide additional, targeted support for those children and young people who need the most help, which includes:
    a schools programme for 5 to 16-year-olds
    a 16 to 19 tuition fund
    an oral language intervention programme for reception-aged children
