Covid-19 Catch up Premium

Chyngton Covid-19 catch up funding


Our school will receive a catch up premium grant from the government in the academic year 2020-2021.

The government recognises that 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 are among those hardest hit. The aggregate impact of lost time in education is substantial, and we need to ensure that children and young people recover and get back on track. Returning to normal educational routines as quickly as possible is critical to our school recovery.

Funding allocation

Schools’ allocations are calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil in year’s reception through to 11. Our allocation is £32,000

Use of funds

We will use this funding for specific activities to support our pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months. Our plan is detailed below.
