Coronavirus (Covid-19) Catch Up Funding
Gov.uk says that in June 2020 the government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up on missed learning caused by coronavirus (COVID19). This is especially important for the most vulnerable pupils and pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds who we know have been most affected. This funding 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 missed learning
a £350 million National Tutoring Programme to provide additional, targeted support for those children and young people who need the most help, which includes:
a schools programme for 5 to 16-year-olds – for more information, see the National Tutoring Programme FAQs
a 16 to 19 tuition fund
an oral language intervention programme for reception-aged children
