Covid-19 Catch-Up Funding Action Plan 2020-21


We were pleased to welcome back all our pupils and students to the school.  We have spent a lot of time making plans and preperations for how we will keep all our children and young people as safe as we can. You can read the details of these plans in the Risk Assessment - 13th January 2022. Our Family Hub has its own Family Hub control measures (click to open).  We have put many things in place to reduce the risks but we do need our young people, parents and carers to help us which is why we have set out ways you can support us and each other in our Home School Expectations.

We will be trying to provide as broad and balanced curriculum as we can. Providing activities that engage and interest whilst making sure that pupils and students learn in a supportive way about the world around them and current events.  Our priority is to make sure that every young persons wellbeing is monitored and where they need support they get it, quickly and effectively.  We have set out what we will do in our Recovery curriculum policy, our Recovery curriculum plan

Obviously the risks will change as we move through this academic year.  We may at times have to be more restrictive to manage greater risk or less restrictive, providing more activities and experiences.  Things will change at short notice as we have experienced before.  We will keep parents and carers up to date by publishing important information letters here at regular intervals.
