COVID 'Catch Up' Funding

Coronavirus Catch Up Premium


Funding allocation

Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). As the catch-up premium has been designed to mitigate the effects of the unique disruption caused by coronavirus (COVID-19).


Use of funds

BHTP will use this funding for specific activities to support our pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the government guidance on ‘curriculum expectations for the next academic year’. We have the have the flexibility to spend the funding in the best way for our pupils and their circumstances.

We have used the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19) support guide for schools’ to support us to make the best use of this funding. This guide details evidence-based approaches to catch up for all children. We have used this document to help us to direct our additional funding in the most effective way.


For 2021 to 2022, we are required to:

  • Use our recovery premium alongside our pupil premium funding and report on our use of them as a single sum in our strategy statement.
  • use the DfE template to publish our strategy statement
  • we will publish our strategy statement by 31 December 2021 - this enables us to take the needs of our new intake into account


Accountability and monitoring

As with all government funding, BHTP school leaders must be able to account for how this money is being used to achieve our goal of getting our children back on track and teachers teaching a 'normal curriculum' as quickly as possible. Governors will regularly scrutinise the school's plans, approach and use of funding from November. This will include consideration of whether we are spending this funding in line with our catch-up priorities and ensuring appropriate transparency for parents/carers.
