  • Schools can use catch-up premium funding to support any catch-up provision that they are offering and can carry any unspent funding forward to future academic years.
  • Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils’ education recovery, in line with the curriculum expectations set out in Government guidance.

What is recovery premium for?
