Are Coventry schools open for extra lessons in the 2021 holidays?
For children and young people, a new education rehabilitation package has been created.
A new £700 million programme has been launched to support young people in England in catching up with missed schooling as a result of the pandemic. Details can be found on the gov website.
Details on how this effects the coventry school holidays 2021 has yet to be announced.
Following the release of the roadmap yesterday, which proposed a phased loosening of controls, the government has released additional components of the recovery assistance programme today, Wednesday, February 24th, to enable children and young people to make up for disrupted learning and growth due to the pandemic.
The government’s top priority, as reported by the Prime Minister, has been to bring children back into education. Both children and students will resume face-to-face schooling in schools and colleges on March 8th.
This will be aided by a proposed £700 million package that will concentrate on improving one-to-one and community community tutoring services, as well as promoting the growth of vulnerable children in early childhood settings and offering summer opportunities for those students who need it the most.
A new one-off Recovery Premium for state primary and secondary schools will be given to schools to use when they see fit to benefit poorer pupils, expanding on the Pupil Premium.
Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister, stated:
Teachers and parents have done a great job of homeschooling, but we know that the classroom is the perfect setting for our children.
Once Coventry schools reopen on March 8th and face-to-face schooling returns, our top priority will be to ensure that no child is left behind as a result of the learning they have skipped during the previous year.
This ambitious package of catch-up funds would provide teachers with the tools and services they need to help their students, as well as provide children with the opportunity to succeed and achieve their full potential.
Gavin Williamson, the Secretary of State for Education, stated:
Our package of initiatives will provide crucial assistance to the children and young people who need it the most, ensuring that everybody, regardless of their experience, has the same ability to achieve their full potential.
I know that long-term assistance will be crucial to ensuring that children make up for missed schooling over the duration of this parliament. In the coming weeks and months, our Education Rehabilitation Commissioner, Sir Kevan Collins, will consult with students, school and college officials, and families to build our longer-term plans.
The new recovery package for England includes:
- A new one-off £302 million Recovery Premium for state primary and secondary schools, building on the Pupil Premium, to further support pupils who need it most. The average primary school will receive around £6,000 extra, and the average secondary school around £22,000 extra. This will help schools to bolster summer provision for their students, for example laying on additional clubs and activities, or for evidence-based approaches for supporting the most disadvantaged pupils from September.
- £200 million (from the £300 million announced by the Prime Minister in January to expand our successful tutoring programmes). This will fund an £83 million expansion of the National Tutoring Programme for primary and secondary schools, which has been shown to boost catch up learning by as much as 3-5 months at a time; a £102 million extension of the 16-19 Tuition Fund for a further year to support more students in English, maths and other vocational and academic subjects; and £18 million funding to support language development in the early years – £10m to be allocated to a pre-reception early language programme and £8m for Nuffield Foundation to deliver the Nuffield Early Language Intervention for reception children.
- £200 million (including the final £100 million from the Prime Minister’s announcement) will be available to secondary schools to deliver face-to-face summer schools. Schools will be able to target provision based on pupils’ needs but the government is suggesting they may want to initially target incoming year 7 pupils. This is alongside wider support funded through our Holiday Activities and Food Programme across the country.
- A range of high-quality online resources will be available for all teachers and pupils, starting from the summer term and throughout summer holidays. These will be provided by Oak National Academy, to help give pupils the confidence they are ready for the next academic year.
Sir Kevan Collins, the Education Recovery Commissioner, will lead the way on longer-term partnership work with students, school and college administrators, educational charities, and families to review how evidence-based approaches can be used to resolve the effect of the pandemic on schooling as part of the government’s effort to create a longer-term education recovery strategy.
Sir Kevan Collins, the Commissioner for Education Rehabilitation, stated:
The National Tutoring Initiative has already set us on the right track by encouraging tens of thousands of young people to benefit from tutoring’s high-quality assistance.
We understand that ensuring that both children and young people have the ability to make up for missed learning would be a long-term undertaking, and the steps announced today are a significant first step.
But this is only the beginning, and over the course of this parliament, I’ll be working with the industry, educational charities, and families to ensure that this funding is provided in a way that helps both young people and the sector, as well as to consider what more is required to help students regain their missed learning.
Professor Becky Francis, the Education Endowment Foundation’s (EEF) Chief Executive, stated:
School closures in Coventry during 2021 have wreaked havoc on the poorest and youngest citizens of community.
The research suggests that tutoring will assist with school rehabilitation, so it’s positive that the government has committed to funding tutoring beyond this academic year, even through the NTP. We foresee it plays a long-term role in narrowing the performance gap between marginalised students and their peers.
During the previous school openings, the NTP partnered with thousands of schools and children around the country to provide specialist tutoring, and it will continue to do so across the spring and throughout the summer.
More than one million computers and tablets were provided to the most vulnerable children and young people around the country as part of a £400 million government investment that will help classrooms, universities, and young people for years to come, as part of today’s bundle of support.
