Summer School

The Government allocated funding to schools to provide a Summer School in order to support the  transition of Year 6 pupils to secondary, following significant disruption due to Covid. Our summer school ran from the week beginning 26th July 2021.

The summer school was facilitated by own teaching and support staff (including activities organised by external companies) to deliver a variety of activities which supported each individual child to:

  • become familiar with their surroundings,
  • make new friends,
  • get to know key members of staff,
  • focus on numeracy and literacy,
  • engage in wellbeing activities,
  • focus on healthy eating

Our summer school was available to all incoming Year 7s with an average of 130 attending each day.  The following activities were available throughout the week:

  • circus skills
  • disco 
  • wellbeing
  • computing
  • literacy and numeracy project
  • drama
