The Recovery curriculum has been written by our English and Maths consultants to support curriculum leaders. It ensures that all pupils from Y1-Y6 have opportunity to cover each aspect of their respective year groups curriculum during 2020-21, as well as incorporating those aspects of teaching and learning which were not taught or need further consolidation from their previous year group due to the Corona virus lockdown.
This is not a ‘fast track catch-up’ programme, which could cause further stress and anxiety for pupils and staff, but a programme which presents a progressive structure of learning to give all pupils the opportunity to reach their potential by the end of the academic year 2021.
The whole ‘Recovery Curriculum’ will also support staff in identifying those pupils who may have underlying mental health difficulties as a result of the ‘Lockdown.’ The premise of the curriculum gives school leaders an opportunity to restructure and create a holistic approach to learning. Following the recent evidence from a number of educationalists and mental health charities:
‘Rather than becoming trapped in a results-based culture focused upon catch-up, we need to focus more upon recovery and well-being, helping pupils develop positive mental well-being and attitudes which will then help them be in the best place for learning to occur.’ (Professor Barry Carpenter – Professor in Mental Health in Education at Oxford Brookes University – May 2020)
1 To give subject leaders in English and Maths opportunity to review the Recovery curriculum. 2 To support leaders in identifying, with both the ‘sending and receiving’ class teachers, the key elements of the 2019-20 curriculum which will need to be taught, as new concepts or for consolidation, in 2020-21. 3 To enable every pupil to cover all elements of the Maths and English curriculum, relevant to their key stage and year group, by the end of the academic year 2021. 4 To support subject leaders in developing their understanding of the key expectations within the National Curriculum for both KS1 and KS2.
