Catch up Funding 2020-21
During the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, the government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up lost time after school closure.
The government specified that schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the curriculum expectations for the next academic year. They noted that, while schools can use their funding in a way that suits their cohort and circumstances, they are expected to use this funding for specific activities which will help pupils catch up on missed education.
Funding is due to be paid in 3 tranches.
