Covid-19 Catch Up Funding
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 disadvantaged backgrounds will be among the hardest affected. The aggregate impact of lost time in education will be substantial and the scale of our response must match the scale of the challenge. Schools’ allocations are calculated on a per-pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 per pupil in Reception to year 11.
The details of our Coronavirus (Covid-19) catch up funding expenditure are detailed below.
