WHAT IS THE COVID CATCH UP PREMIUM?

The catch-up premium has been designed to mitigate the effects of the disruption caused by coronavirus (COVID-19), is only available for the 2020- 2021 academic year and is calculated on a per pupil basis, providing a total of £80 for each pupil in years reception through to 11. This is provided in three tranches across the year.
