Contextual Information for Higher Education Providers (2022)

COVID-19 implications for current cohort.

Students in the current Year 13 were subjected to a number of periods of self-isolation at home during their last academic year.  Between 4th January 2021 and 8th March 2021, following the Government guidelines, the school was shut, and students were taught at home.  During this time, 75% of lessons were taught via Teams and students checked in with their Form Tutors weekly, having access to a recorded or live assembly from the pastoral team.  On return to school, students sat their PPEs, giving teachers solid assessment data to analyse their learning throughout the school year.  Those that were isolating were given the PPEs to sit at home in low control. 

Unfortunately, between the 29 June and 9 July 2021, the school was closed as a whole again due to the number of cases.  Students had 75% of their lessons via Teams again during this time.

The sixth form team monitored the students during lockdown and asked for regular feedback from staff about the students’ progress and from this created an intervention group that we are working with during the autumn term and beyond.  Revision and catch up classes will start in October for students to attend.

The PPEs, informal assessments completed throughout Year 12 and teacher discretion will give staff direction on awarding students their UCAS predictions.
