Catch up funding
In June, a £1 billion fund for education was announced by the government. 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 does not include Nursery numbers. Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances. To support schools to make the best use of this funding, the Education Endowment Foundation has published a support guide for schools with evidence-based approaches to catch up for all students. https://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/public/files/Publications/Covid-19_Resources/The_EEF_guide_to_supporting_school_planning_-_A_tiered_approach_to_2020-21.pdf

The Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in April 2011 and, since that date, schools have been allocated funding for children from families who are eligible for free school meals, plus looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces. The aim of the funding is to help raise standards and improve wellbeing for children in these groups. For eligible children, we use the funding to offer a range of benefits, including:
- tailored support in class
- additional 1:1 targeted support for phonics, reading and maths
- intervention groups
- after school booster sessions for Y2 and Y6 pupils
- subsidised school visits and residentials

The primary PE and sport premium was introduced in 2013 to improve the provision for physical education and school sport in primary schools across England. The £150 million per year funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. Funding is allocated directly to schools and is ring-fenced, meaning it can only be spent on improving the provision of PE and sport in schools.
The revenue from the soft drinks industry levy will be used to double the primary school PE and sport premium to £320 million per year, to help schools support healthier, more active lifestyles.
