Catch Up Premium

Coronavirus (COVID-19): catch-up funding plan


The government is providing schools with catch-up premium funding for the 2020/2021 academic year. The aim of the funding is to help pupils catch up on education they have missed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to make up for lost teaching over the previous months.

The Education Endowment Foundation’s ‘School Planning Guide 2020-21’, may help schools to develop their plans for the premium.

Mainstream schools will receive £80 per pupil from reception to Year 11 inclusive, and special, AP and hospital schools will receive £240 for each place. This funding will be received in three instalments, the first in Autumn 2020, the second in early 2021 and the third in the 2021 Summer term.

At Hauxton Primary we have adopted a tiered approach to how we spend our Catch Up Premium, as recommended by the Education Endowment Foundation more details of which can be found by clicking on the link above. We utilise the catch up  premium funding to :

  •  provide additional teaching and learning support across the curriculum
  •  provide targeted interventions and mentoring to support pupils academic and social development
  •  fund our wider strategies work which could include behaviour management training, curriculum enrichment activities and resources.

The Catch Up Premium Spending Record is below. It shows how we have used the funding in Autumn 2020 and Spring 2021.
