The government has announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up. This includes a one-off universal £650 million catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time.

Although all children have had their education disrupted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, it is likely that disadvantaged and vulnerable groups will have been hardest hit. That is why, alongside the universal catch-up premium, the government are launching a £350 million National Tutoring Programme to provide additional, targeted support for those children and young people who need the most help.
New End is currently offering small group tutuoring sessions after school. These hour long sessions are led by New End qualified teachers and focus on reading and mathematics. Currently twenty-seven children have been offered this tuition. The impact of this expenditure on the educational attainment of these children will be assessed termly.
