The government provided funding to cover a one-off universal catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year.
It aimed to support pupils to catch up for lost learning as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
In the 2021-22 academic year, funding is allocated via the School led tutoring grant.
The Department for Education will provide ring-fenced grant funding directly to schools to support provision of school-led tutoring, in the academic year 2021/22. The amount that schools will receive will be proportionate to the number of Pupil Premium students on roll. For the next academic year, the grant will be calculated to cover 75% of the cost of locally-sourced tuition (based on average costs of tutoring) with schools contributing the remaining costs.
Schools will have flexibility to use this additional grant as they see fit in providing tuition support to pupils that can benefit most. Schools will have freedom to determine who is best placed to deliver tutoring support to meet their particular needs, including utilising existing school staff or others who are familiar with their school and pupil needs. Schools can exercise their discretion in determining which pupils are most in need of tutoring support, including using this grant to support tutoring for non-pupil-premium students, as they see fit.
The school's Catch-Up plan will be published by the end of the Autumn Term.
