The COVID government catch-up premium has been given to schools as a 'one of payment', designed to mitigate the effects of the unique disruption caused by coronavirus (COVID-19), the grant is only available for the 2020-2021 academic year and is calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil in Reception through to Year 11.


'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 aggregate impact of lost time in education will be substantial, and the scale of our response must match the scale of the challenge'.
