Catch-Up Funding

Covid-Catch Up Fund


In June, a £1 billion fund for education was announced by the government.  Guidance has been released showing that the money is split between a catch-up premium and a national tutoring scheme. The catch-up premium is funded on a per pupil basis at £80 per pupil. This will be based on the previous year’s census and will not include Nursery numbers.  We will be in receipt of £12560 (157x £80) This funding will be paid in three instalments – Autumn, Spring and Summer (£46.67 per pupil split across the first two payments and £33.33 per pupil in the Summer). The spending of this money will be down to schools to allocate as they see best.

At Archbishop Cranmer Academy  this money will be used in order to provide:

Curriculum resources and materials that support both the “catch up” and the mental health of pupils.

Additional support staff and teacher support time allocated to develop the outcomes of children who have been identified as needing “catch up” in their learning.
