With the majority of pupils having missed much of the past year in the classroom and instead learning remotely, we are using a range of strategies to help them catch-up both academically and emotionally.
As a Trust, we have received around £340,000 in Covid catch-up funding from the Department for Education and we are using this funding creatively in a number of ways to ensure our pupils make good academic progress and to identify and address any behavioural issues.
- Tutoring for small groups or one to one for pupils identified as needing additional support
- Additional support staff provision to better support pupils
- Easter and after-school booster classes in a range of subjects for secondary pupils
- Additional support in English, maths and science for disadvantaged primary pupils
- Outreach activities and teacher-led nurture clubs, offering yoga, mindful colouring, music and other activities to support emotional wellbeing
