Catch Up Premium

Catch Up Premium


Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will be among those hardest hit.

The government has announced £1 billion of funding 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.

Our allocation has been calculated on a per pupil basis, providing us with a total of £80 for each pupil in years reception through to Year 2.  For the academic year 2020-2021 Newnham Infant and Nursery School will receive £21,00 Catch Up Premium. Below is our action plan for how the funding will be spent. This will be reviewed each term by Governors and Leaders.
