THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF THE CLAIM FORM IS MIDDAY FRIDAY 26 MARCH. Therefore, please arrange for this form to
be completed by the deadline to ensure that your school/academy receives funding for the costs claimed.
DfE have contacted schools separately with information on how to claim for COVID-related staff absences for November and December 2020,therefore costs for COVID related staff absences during these months will not be supported by NCC. Should Government decide at a later date to support COVID related staff absence costs during March to October 2020 and January to March 2021, NCC will make arrangements to reclaim these costs
back from your school or academy
