Education catch-up

The Department for Education (DfE) is supporting catch-up programmes and fun activities for all children and young people in England.

Read the Education catch-up page to find out what your child can benefit from.

Education catch-up – Find out more about what is on offer to help your academic catch-up and physical, social and mental wellbeing.

Get in touch with your school or the local authority to find out what’s available in North East Lincolnshire.

You can also find the link to the Education catch-up on the ‘Education’ tab of the Parents and carers page, or Children and young peoples page on the Local Offer.

Maths and English

Specialist training and materials will be provided to support focused sessions to boost numeracy and literacy skills and help pupils catch-up in English and maths.

Schools with high proportions of children from disadvantaged backgrounds will be prioritised for the scheme in order to support those most impacted by the disruption to education.

Activities and support include extra funding for core subjects, summer activities, online resources and more.


The Education catch-up page includes a dedicated page with information on Education catch-up and SEND.

Post-16 SEND

SEND students and 19-24 year-olds with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) might be eligible for one-to-one and small group tuition through the 16 to 19 tuition fund. Contact your child’s college, school or learning provider to find out more.

Tutoring for 5-16 year-olds

The National Tutoring Programme provides one-to-one or small group teaching with specialist tutors to help children catch up on missed time in school. Contact your child’s school for more information and to find out if your child is eligible.

Summer schools

Your child’s secondary school will let you know if they’re running a one- or two-week summer school where your child can enjoy a mix of fun activities and catch-up lessons. To help with extra costs, summer school places in special schools and special units are funded at a higher rate.

Tutoring for 5-16 year-olds

The National Tutoring Programme includes specialist provision for supporting students with SEND. From September, special and alternative provision schools will receive additional funding to ensure they can provide one-to-one tutoring for their pupils. Contact your child’s school to find out more and if your child is eligible.
