Y5 & 6 Open Evening: Join us on Wednesday 22 September 2021 from 16:30 till 19:00

COVID-19 catch-up premium

What catch-up funding is for

The government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up lost time after school closure. This is especially important for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds.

This funding includes:

  • a one-off universal £650 million catch up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time
  • a £350 million National Tutoring Programme to provide additional, targeted support for those children and young people who need the most help, which includes
  • a schools programme for 5 to 16-year-olds – for more information, see the National Tutoring Programme FAQs
  • an oral language intervention programme for reception-aged children


How we will spend the allocated funding:

For more information on how the catch-up funding will be spent at West Walsall E-ACT Academy, refer to the following document:
