Catch Up Funding and Recovery

In 2020-21 Gosbecks Primary School received additional Government funding of £24k to support 'catch-up' following missed provision between March 2020 and September 2020. Following the return to school, priorities were identified and provision was put into place to support those children who had fallen behind. In September 2021, these priorities were reviewed alongside our school development plan, curriculum and disadvantaged strategy  in order to support our children to reach age related expectations.

Remote Education Plan

During lockdown our school provided quality remote learning to our children through our online learning platform DB Primary. Our remote education policy aims to:

Ensure consistency in the approach to remote learning for pupils who aren’t in school
Set out expectations for all members of the school community with regards to remote learning
Provide appropriate guidelines for data protection
