Coronavirus

Keeping our children, staff and families safe is our priority. We have worked hard to develop systems and procedures, focused on minimising risk. Within this section of the website, the full procedures for keeping safe at Sleights can be found (under the ‘School Procedures’ page) as well as archived examples of our home learning offer.

Our school’s remote learning policy can be found here: Remote Learning Policy

This policy has been updated using family feedback, generated in November 2020.

 

Coronavirus Additional Funding

In response to Coronavirus (Covid-19) school closures, the government announced additional funding to schools, enabling support for children who have lost learning time after school closure. This additional funding is generated based on the school’s census of October 2019. At that time, there were 99 children on roll at Sleights. £80 is allocated for each pupil in reception to year 6, inclusive. It is therefore anticipated that Sleights will receive £7,920 in additional funding. This will be paid in instalments at intervals throughout the year.

The Department for Education state that schools should:

use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up lost teaching over the previous months, in line with curriculum expectations

To support leaders at Sleights identify how this additional funding is used, evidence from the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has been used. The strategy priorities in this report are underpinned by principles from the EEF and their evidence-based reports.

The approaches and decisions for how this funding is used at Sleights will be reviewed regularly by staff and scrutinised by governors.
