Recovery Curriculum

We cannot wait to welcome all of our children back. We know that this year has not followed the annual pattern of a school year. Suddenly, daily routines evaporated along with the familiar ways of learning, which all children knew in their daily school life. We understand that not all pupils will be able to return and simply pick up at exactly the same point where they left their education on the day our school closed. Too much has happened. We are very aware that coming back to school may feel like a different experience for many of our children. With all of this in mind, we felt it important to share, with you, the approach we will be taking to welcome each and every one of our pupils back in September.

Our Recovery Curriculum is a systematic relationship-based approach, built around the research by the mental health expert Barry Carpenter. The aim of our Recovery Curriculum is to re-ignite the flame of learning in each and every one of our children, whilst supporting them with their mental health.

 

Relationships

For most children, their daily goal in going to school is not just to learn but to see their friends and to feel a sense of self-worth that only a peer group can offer. We cannot underestimate the impact the loss of this social interaction has had. Many of the relationships that were thriving such as friendships, teachers and supporting adults may need to be invested in and restored. We will plan for this to happen and not assume that it will.
