In June 2020 the government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up on missed learning caused by coronavirus (COVID19). This is especially important for the most vulnerable pupils and pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds who we know have been most affected. 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 missed learning
- National Tutoring Programme to provide additional, targeted support for those children and young people who need the most help.
Below is an action plan and the impact of the Covid catch up premium for the academic year 2020-2021 for Chenderit School. This guidance was withdrawn on 1 August 2022. Funding for the coronavirus (COVID 19) catch up premium has now finished.
The government used to provide schools with catch-up funding for students in year 7 who did not achieve a Level 4 in either English (reading) or Maths. This funding is provided to support schools in helping these students to make rapid progress in literacy and numeracy. The guidance supporting this additional funding was withdrawn on the 1st June 2021 with the last funding being for the 2019-2020 academic year. Below are the historical impact statements that relate to the year 7 catch-up premium up.
