Recovery Curriculum & Remote Learning

To support children in returning to school after COVID-19 we have designed and implemented our personalised recovery curriculum.

During COVID-19 and the periods of closure the school implemented a remote learning offer which consisted of 3 live lessons every school day from the 2nd day of closure. CPD for staff had taken place in the prior term to ensure an effective method of teaching using remote technology was in place swiftly, children were engaged and motived to participate which they did using TEAMS and SEESAW. Communication between school and home was crucial to ensure children continued to make progress in their learning. To maintain community cohesion events were organised in the community to raise everyone’s morale and ensure the school remained the focal point for support during this difficult time.

The COVID-19 catch up premium has been utilised to provide additional quality first teaching which is closing the gap to national in reading, writing and maths.
