All government-maintained schools are receiving catch-up premium funding. The catch-up premium funds give you control over how best to help your students that have dropped behind. You can use the money as you see fit and can also carry unused funding towards future financial years. See the guidance
Book teachers for small group tutoring or supply cover to enable your teachers to lead intervention groups. You can choose the time, frequency and duration of the bookings all for similar or lower cost than through the National Tutoring Programme (NTP).
We provide qualified teachers with experience across primary, secondary, SEN and alternative provision. All staff complete our strict vetting requirements, including our CPD-accredited safeguarding course.
We know you want your money to go as far as it can. Our model allows us to provide 1:4–1:6 tutoring at similar or better value than through the National Tutoring Programme (NTP).
Provide small-group tuition for students who've had to self-isolate
Cover staff absences due to covid or shielding and easily re-book teachers you already know

Keeping children safe is our highest priority. As such, our approach is designed to exceed the DfE guidance as set out in 'Keeping Children Safe in Education'.
We require all staff going in to schools to follow government guidance and declare that they are not experiencing any symptoms. Engaging regular staff for a fixed commitment with your school allows you to operate safely around the virus. Fewer changing staff minimises incoming risks while allowing teachers to get to know your school and build strong relationships with students.
As per the DfE, “Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances".
Engaging tutors via Zen Educate could give you an extra pair of hands during the week, freeing up your time to better respond to incoming challenges. Our staff are available for long-term booking which would provide continuity of education to allow children to catch up, and continuity of support in your school.
Using your catch-up funding with Zen means you can spend it how you want without adding extra paperwork and administrative burden for your staff. We’ll provide you a simple breakdown of your catch-up funding usage for your record-keeping.
