Covid Catch Up Premium
Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of Covid 19. To support the children to overcome the adverse effects on their education, a sum of money has been awarded to each school to support strategies that are designed to mitigate the unique effects of the virus.
The allocation of money from the Government will be calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil. In Leamington Hastings Academy this includes pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.
As the catch-up premium has been designed to mitigate the effects of the unique disruption caused by coronavirus (COVID-19), the grant will only be available for the 2020 to 2021 academic year, it will not be added to schools’ baselines in calculating future years’ funding allocations.
