Catch up premium
The government is providing funding to cover a one-off universal catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year. It aims to support pupils to catch up for lost learning so schools can meet the curriculum expectations for the next academic year. Schools are able to spend the funding in the most effective way for pupils in the local context.
For information about how School Leaders have spent the Catch up premium please see the document below.
Recovery Premium 2021-2022
In February 2021, the government announced a one-off recovery premium as part of its package of funding to support education recovery.
The recovery premium provides additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year. Building on the pupil premium this funding will help schools to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting disadvantaged pupils.
Shelton Junior school uses the recovery premium funding alongside the main pupil premium funding and it is accounted for in the pupil premium strategy for 2021-22.
