Catch Up Premium: Coronavirus


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


Our strategy for how the academy plans to spend the current year’s allocation can be found in the documents below.
