“A learning community’s well-being has a lot to do with the quality of relationships, cohesion, inter-dependence and belonging.”
Nobody quite knows how adversely affected our children have been by the absence of daily routine schools provide. From the evidence available, we can assume some will have felt anguish caused by the lack of social interaction or loss from not being able to undertake the informal rituals of school life - the missed school journey or end of year production, we are talking about rites of passage for young people transitioning into the next phase of their lives.
Schools are so much more than places which provide education - they are about people. So, as we support our pupils beginning a new academic year, safely, our attention shifts as much towards helping children come back to us and each other as it necessitates considering the formal curriculum.
Our recovery curriculum for September 2020 needs to balance how to learn best with what to learn.
In order to do this, we will be supporting your child/children by focusing intensively on transition activities. We will also be teaching specific PSHE lessons with resources designed to promote an effective and happy transition back to school.
Please see our outline of our recovery curriculum below along with a range of resources which may help you initiate and promote discussion with your child/ren and for any anxieties to be explored, during the summer holidays.
Below you will find the curriculum map for each class. These are updated termly and give you an overview of what each class will be covering during a given term. For further information, please contact your child's class teacher.
