Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will be among those hardest hit. The aggregate impact of lost time in education will be substantial, and the scale of our response must match the scale of the challenge. Schools’ allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil in years Reception through to Y11.
We are living through extraordinary times and we are proud of how our community has come together to ensure the safety, well-being and continued education of our children. A comprehensive risk assessment has taken place to ensure our pupils can stay in school and stay well. It is monitored and reviewed and centres around reducing contacts, maximising distancing wherever possible and minimising the potential for contamination.
COVID Catch-Up Premium
Remote Learning (Google Classroom)
We are excited that the current circumstances have allowed us to develop remote and blended learning opportunities for our pupils.
We use Google Classroom inside and outside school to support your child’s learning. By using it in lessons and to set homework children become familiar with how to access and use this online platform and this will help minimise the impact of any periods of isolation.
When individual pupils are not able to attend school because they are isolating work will be set for them via their Google Classroom. If we do have to isolate bubbles then your child will receive a daily timetable including live lessons, work, resources and opportunities to interact with their teachers and friends.
Google Classroom will also provide a means of accessing additional learning opportunities and resources to support and challenge you child at home.
