COVID Catch Up Fund
What is Catch up Funding?
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.
- School allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis.
- Special, AP and hospital schools will get £240 for each place for the 2020 to 2021 academic year.
- Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the curriculum expectations for the next academic year.
Below is how we intend to use our Catch up Funding to support our students in returning to school.
