Covid Catch Up Summer School
As the government is releasing funding to support children and young people catch up on missed learning caused by coronavirus (Covid19), many schools are creating Covid Catch Up Summer Schools to support their students.
Some schools have chosen to create a focussed week of activities during the Summer to help students develop maths, English science, PE and general health and wellbeing.
As these are taking place during August, many of the regular teachers would need to sacrifice holiday and work in addition to their regular contracted hours. As a result, more schools are looking to Yorkshire Education to provide qualified professionals to help relieve the pressure during this time.
Claire Binns, Office Manager for Yorkshire Education explains: “It is great to see the government offering funding options for schools which sees a typical primary school of 200 pupils receive £16,000 while a typical secondary school of 1,000 pupils receive £80,000.*
We know that teachers work incredibly hard which is why Yorkshire Education is supporting its schools in York, North Yorkshire and East Yorkshire by providing qualified teachers that are available during the summer to teach at the Covid Catch Up Summer Schools to help deliver lessons, which is also providing opportunities for Early Career Teachers.
While 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. Schools should particularly focus on disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils as we know they have been most affected.”
