COVID Catch Up Premium
WHAT IS COVID CATCH UP PREMIUM?
Children and young people across the country experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). Covid-19 has exposed and deepened educational inequality, the EEF’s own research, suggests that the disruption to learning is likely to have at least reversed the progress made in closing the disadvantage gap over the past decade.
The catch-up premium has been designed to mitigate the effects of the disruption caused by coronavirus (COVID-19), was only available for the 2020- 2021 academic year and was calculated on a per pupil basis, providing a total of £80 for each pupil in years reception through to year 11. This is provided in three tranches across the year.
Hatcham Primary carried forward the remaining funding into 2021-22 academic year.
