Catch up Premium

The following information has been taken from the DFE Website

"Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will be amongst those hardest hit. The aggregate impact of lost time in education will be substantial, and the scale of our response must match the scale of the challenge.

The government has announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up. This includes 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.

Schools’ allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil in years reception through to 11."

The Catch-Up fund is halos known as The Recovery Premium.

Mrs Wood has oversight of the Catch-Up Premium and Recovery Premium.

Mrs Revie is the Governor with oversight of how the Catch Up premium is spent and the impact on the pupils in the school.
