We hope our families stay as safe as possible during this challenging time for all. As a school we are following the latest government advice and therefore we are only open to a very small number of pupils. This is of course a very hard decision to take as we want our young people to be in school as much as possible, however we are very mindful that we need to keep all of our school community as safe as possible during this very difficult time.
We will continue to provide regular updates regarding the situation and inform you of any changes as soon as possible. Please remember you can contact your child's class teacher for advice and guidance regarding how to support your child at home with their targets as well as accessing the home learning section on our website in the children section to support with home education.
The government is providing one-off Covid-19 Catch Up Premium for the academic year of 2020-2021. Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support pupils to catch up for lost learning over the previous months, in line with curriculum expectations for the next academic year.
Schools can use their funding in a way that suits their cohort and circumstances, they are expected to use this funding for specific activities which will help pupils catch up on missed learning. Please click on the link below to see how Watling View is using the Covid-19 Catch Up Premium.
It is important that if a young person must isolate or their school bubble is unable to access on site learning we have a remote learning programme that can be implemented immediately. We listened to parents feedback from their experiences of remote learning during the first lockdown and have created a blended approach to support pupils remote learning.
