Last year, the UK government announced plans to deliver £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up on missed learning caused by coronavirus (COVID19). Emphasis was also placed on the money being made available for the most vulnerable pupils and pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds who were most affected. According to the government website, this funding includes:
School allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis.
Mainstream schools will get £80 for each pupil from reception to year 11 inclusive.
The following settings will get £240 for each place for the 2020 to 2021 academic year:
We have applied additional weighting to specialist settings, recognising the significantly higher per pupil costs they face. A typical primary school of 200 pupils will receive £16,000 while a typical secondary school of 1,000 pupils will receive £80,000.
Eduspot provide a variety of resources which can contribute to improving your school facilities as we prepare for September.
