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 (COVID-19). This is especially important for the most vulnerable pupils and pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds who we know have been most affected.
School allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis. Mainstream schools will get £80 for each pupil from reception to year 11 inclusive.
Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils’ education recovery in line with the curriculum expectations in the actions for schools during the coronavirus outbreak guidance.
St. Mary’s has been allocated £16,000 for the catch-up premium.
