Funding allocation (Mainstream Schools)
Schools’ allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil from FS2 (Reception) through to Year 11.
Though funding has been calculated on a per pupil basis, schools should use the sum available to them as a single total from which to prioritise
support for pupils according to their need.
As the catch-up premium has been designed to mitigate the effects of the unique disruption caused by coronavirus (COVID-19), the grant is currently only available for the 2020 to 2021 academic year. It will not be added to schools’ baselines in calculating future years’ funding allocations.
