Catch Up Funding
Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of
coronavirus (COVID-19). Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will be among those hardest hit. The
aggregate impact of lost time in education will be substantial, and the scale of our response must match the scale of the challenge.
Schools’ allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil in
years reception through to 11. St. Joseph’s RC Primary School will receive a total of £12,880 based on 161 pupils.
