Home-School Agreement: Live Lessons

A letter was sent to parents and carers in October 2020 with details of the Home-School Agreement, which is designed to make sure students, parents and carers and staff are fully aware of their roles and responsibilities, and outlines what students, teachers and parents/carers should do when engaging in remote, face-to-face, online-learning.

Covid-19 Catch Up Premium

Pupils have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds are among those hardest hit. We have the professional knowledge and expertise to ensure that our pupils get back on track.

The government has announced a £650 million catch-up premium for 2020 to 2021 at the rate of £80 for each pupil from Year 7 to Year 11 to enable schools to gain support to help all pupils catch up for lost teaching time. School leaders will assess the effect of the money spent on the educational attainment of those pupils by monitoring academic progress and emotional support.
