COVID-19 Catch-Up Premium Action Plan, 2020 -2021
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 among those hardest hit. 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. Alongside the universal catch-up premium, the government are also launching a £350 million National Tutoring Programme to provide additional, targeted support for those children and young people who need the most help.
