Learning Recovery


Covid-19 has caused disruption to children’s education exacerbating concerns for pupil progress and heightening the need to ensure that quality first teaching and catch-up intervention are robust and accurately targeted using all available resources.

At Cedars Primary School we believe that all pupils, irrespective of their background or the challenges they face, should make good progress and achieve high attainment across all subject areas. Our Learning Recovery Plan should be read in conjunction with our Strategic School Plan, September 2021 and Pupil Premium Strategy 2021-2022.

Our children’s well-being and personal development continues to be prioritised.

In Nursery, the prime areas of learning, including communication and language, personal, social and emotional development (PSED) and physical development will be prioritised.

In Reception, children’s knowledge will be baselined in the 7 areas of learning of the early year’s foundation stage curriculum and children will be taught the early years curriculum from their stage of development.

In key stage 1 and 2 maintaining strong progress in phonics and reading, increasing vocabulary, writing and maths will take precedence. The curriculum will remain broad with a full set of subjects taught over the year including science, computing, history, geography, art and design, design and technology, modern foreign language, music, physical education and relationships and health education.

Remote Education will continue to be available for children who are self-isolating in line with government guidelines.
