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.


School allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis. Mainstream school will get £80 for each pupil.


Payments will be made in three stages - Autumn 2020, Early 2021 and Summer 2021.


In this document we will outline:

  • how it is intended that the grant will be spent
  • when the effect of this expenditure on the educational attainment of those pupils at the school will be assessed
