Catch-up Premium Funding & Strategy
What is Catch-up Premium?
The Government has announced that £1 billion of funding has been earmarked for schools 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 due to Covid-19. Although all children have had their education disrupted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, it is likely that disadvantaged and vulnerable groups will have been hardest hit.
The funding will support Mendip Green to resume teaching a normal curriculum as quickly as possible following partial or full school closure.
Our Catch-up Funding and Strategy
Our school funding will be £50,800. Please see the working document on how this money will be spent this academic year.
This is a working document and will be regularly updated in response to changing needs and emerging priorities.
