Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). In response 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.
In 2020 – 2021 the academy will receive £72,400.00 from the government under the Coronavirus (COVID-19) catch-up premium.
In addition, Northern Education Trust has allocated a further £137,972.00 from reserves to support the catch-up strategy below.

In addition to the high-quality teaching and learning and raft of support that we offer as a matter of course in our academy we are able, in additional response to the challenges posed by COVID-19, to offer a range of enhanced bespoke ‘catch-up’ interventions to ensure students make the best possible progress going forward.
The 16 to 19 tuition fund is £96 million of one-off funding for the 2020 to 2021 academic year only. It is ring fenced funding for schools, colleges and all other 16 to 19 providers to mitigate the disruption to learning arising from coronavirus (COVID-19). The funding is being provided to support small group tuition* for 16 to 19 students in English, maths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted.
In 2020 – 2021 Thorp academy will receive £2123.00 from the government under the Coronavirus (COVID-19) 16 to 19 Tuition Fund.
