COVID-19 Catch-Up Premium Grant 2020-2021


Government Guidance for Funding

  • Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their students to catch-up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the curriculum expectations for the next academic year.
  • Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances. While schools can use their funding in a way that suits their cohort and circumstances, they are expected to use this funding for specific activities which will help students catch-up on missed education.
  • Although you'll receive funding on a per student basis, you should use the sum available to you as a single total to prioritise support. There are no specific requirements for who to spend it on.
  • To support schools to implement their catch-up plans effectively, the Education Endowment Fund (EEF) has published the school planning guide: 2020 to 2021. This will provide further guidance on how schools should implement catch-up strategies and supporting case studies to highlight effective practice.
