Catch Up Premium and Recovery 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 the hardest hit. The impact of lost time in education will be substantial, and the scale of our response must match the scale of the challenge. The Catch-up Premium was allocated to school in the academic year 2020-21 and school allocations were calculated on a per pupil basis.

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 has provided 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.

DfE guidance states that schools should use these funding packages for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months. Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances.

At St. Michaels we want our children to flourish and to gain every opportunity to live fulfilled lives. We are committed to providing the highest quality education for all our children regardless of background or barrier to learning in all aspect of school life. Please see below to see details of how the funding is being used:
