Catch Up Pupil Funding 2020/21
The Catch Up Premium Funding is an amount of money allocated to schools through their budget based on the number of children in school. Each school has autonomy to spend the grant to provide for the needs of its pupils with the aim of narrowing the gap between the progress and attainment of those for whom Covid has created a gap in learning between children and the national expectations for their year group. The allocation of funds in each school will depend on the school context and the needs of individual children and groups of pupils. This means that there must be a flexible use of the money that may result in money being allocated differently across schools.
