Catching-up Fund

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 included 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.

School allocations were calculated on a per pupil basis.

Mainstream schools got £80 for each pupil in from reception to year 11 inclusive.

For the academic year 2021 – 2022, schools offer is referred to as the Recovery Premium and is accounted for through the Pupil Premium Strategy
