Coronavirus (Covid-19) Catch up Premium

Coronavirus Catch Up Premium


The government is providing schools with £650 million of universal catch-up premium funding for the 2020/2021 academic year. The aim of the funding is to help pupils catch up on education they have missed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to make up for lost teaching over the previous months.

Mainstream schools will receive £80 per pupil which means that St. Teresa’s will receive £22,240. This funding will be received in three instalments, the first in Autumn 2020, the second in early 2021 and the third in the 2021 Summer term.
