Covid-19 Catch up Premium

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) catch-up premium grant was introduced in July 2020 and is allocated to schools to support pupils by tailoring the use of the funding to identified gaps to attainment as a result of school closures due to Covid-19. It is for the school to determine how best to use the funding.

For the current academic year (2020-21), we must publish our Coronavirus (COVID-19) catch-up premium grant strategy setting out:

  • The amount of the school’s Covid-19 catch-up premium grant allocation
  • A summary of the main barriers to educational achievement faced by the school
  • How the Covid-19 catch-up premium grant allocation is to be spent to address those barriers and the reasons for that approach
  • How the school is to measure the impact and effect of its expenditure of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) catch-up premium grant allocation
  • The date of the school’s next review of its Covid-19 catch-up premium grant strategy

Details of how this fund will be used at Unified Academy can be found in the attachment below.

Covid-19 Catch-Up Funding

My son joined Unified Academy in September 2020 and it is the best educational setting for him.  As a parent, I was apprehensive about my son attending a new place, but the experience for him has been fantastic. Having had a tough time in previous schools, his attitude to attending school has been difficult. Unified Academy has changed his attitude towards school and that is thanks to the positivity of all the staff.  My son finally feels accepted and that is a great weight off my shoulders!
