Inspired to Achieve

Our Recovery & Re-discovery Curriculum

Following the re-opening of schools to all pupils in September 2020, there has been an acknowledgement that living through lockdown will have affected children in many different ways. As a school we recognise that the following could apply to children:

  • Some will have enjoyed an extended period of time at home with their families and gained a lot from learning in a small environment with help always on hand
  • Some will have found it hard to learn at home and may have become disconnected from learning
  • Some will have spent little time with other children and may have a reduced ability to share, collaborate, compromise and negotiate
  • Some will have found the period stressful or boring and families may have noticed an impact on their happiness, well-being or mental health
  • Some will bounce back quickly and present as 'ready to learn' from day 1 in school

At Wheatfield, we recognise that, however children return, it is our job to support their recovery (where appropriate) but also to promote a re-discovery of learning. Our plans for the autumn term, reflect this aim and teachers will be completing more personal, social and emotional work with children alongside our revised curriculum. 

The information on this page explains this in a little more detail and also provides some links for families. Keep coming back and taking a look as we build the content.

Year 6 Survey

Children in year 6 are taking part in a survey to help support the Recovery (Re-discovery) Curriculum as all pupils return to full time education post Coronavirus. It will provide an opportunity for pupils to voice their opinions on some health and wellbeing themes. Our school will get feedback on our pupils’ survey data and this will help us to monitor the well-being of our pupils over time. The survey does not ask for any identifiable information such as name, date of birth or address and will run this term.

Inclusion Page

You can visit our inclusion page by clicking the icon below. This was originally part of our Home-Learning information.

It contains lots of useful links and resources that were added to support children during the lockdown period (many of which are equally as applicable as we return to school in a 'new normal' phase).

Children understandably have a lot of questions about this unsettling period in our history (and their young lives) - we hope you find the information useful.
