When the children started the new school year in September, many were returning to the classroom for the first time in almost six months. Many children have been able to keep learning while staying at home. However, we know that children have not been able to learn in the same way as they would have in school and the consequences of the pandemic will have impacted on all children (but particularly for those from socially disadvantaged families).
Closing the learning and emotional gap will take time and require a sustained response. As such, at Charlton the ‘recovery curriculum’ will be a clear priority. The details of our planned approach can be read in the link below. This strategy aims to provide a summary of the additional support and resources that we intend to implement, in order to close gaps created by the wider Covid-19 respones and school closure.
