Catch-up premium

In the 2020-21 academic year, children experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). 

The government provided funding to support children and young people to catch up. This included a one-off universal catch-up premium to ensure that schools had the support they needed to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time.
