n February 2021, the government announced a one-off recovery premium as part of its package of funding to support education recovery.
The recovery premium provides additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year. Building on the pupil premium, this funding will help schools to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting disadvantaged pupils.
All schools that are eligible for pupil premium are eligible for recovery premium. This includes the following types of schools:
We will provide funding to local authorities for eligible pupils they have placed in independent special schools, where the local authority pays full tuition fees, as recorded on their January 2021 alternative provision census.
The recovery premium will be allocated using the same data as the pupil premium. This means the following pupils will attract recovery premium funding to schools:
School allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis.
Mainstream schools will get:
Other types of eligible schools will get £290 for each eligible pupil.
We have applied additional weighting to specialist provision recognising the significantly higher per pupil costs they face.
We have included a minimum payment that we refer to as a ‘floor’ to ensure that:
As with pupil premium, the funding for looked-after children will be paid to the local authority and should be managed by the virtual school head.
School allocations and the conditions of grant will be published ahead of the first payment in September.
How do we measure success?
The school tracks the progress of all students, including students in this particular group.
Success will be evidence that shows that students in this group are making better progress than in the past and significantly closing the gap in performance. We will also compare their progress against their peers in the school and nationally, so that we can judge the impact of our work in this broader context.
Softer impact data is also gathered in the form of parental responses to feedback questionnaires and the annual pupil report as well as anecdotal evidence from parents and students. otherwise unavailable to them.
