Covid-19 Catch-up Premium Strategy

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Catch up Premium Funding 


Children across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of Coronavirus (COVID-19).  In June 2020, the Government announced funding which schools can use to support their pupils to catch-up. Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances, helping their pupils catch-up on missed education. 

At STW, we are committed to reducing the effects of school closures, ensuring that all children make excellent progress to ensure that they are fully prepared for the next stage of their learning at the end of primary school. 

Schools’ allocations are calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil in years Reception through to Year 11.  This funding will be paid to schools in installments during the 2020/21 academic year.
