The government has provided additional funding to help pupils catch up from the disruption caused by the pandemic. We discuss these sources of funding here.

Find out how to monitor your school's spending on education recovery, including questions to ask about spending on each funding stream.

Coronavirus catch-up premium

This was a one-off premium for the 2020/21 academic year, to help pupils catch up for lost learning.

Your school can carry any unspent funding forward into the 2022/23 academic year and beyond – you're able to spend the funding in the most effective way for your pupils, which could include accessing the National Tutoring Programme (NTP) . Read our summaries of the coronavirus catch-up premium and the funded tutoring programmes.
