2020/21 Curriculum Recovery Plans

On this page you will find our adapted curriculum for the next phase of our school as we welcome back all pupils in September. We are calling this our recovery curriculum, which acknowledges that the children will need to get back to a place where they feel safe, emotionally secure and equipped with the necessary skill sets and learning behaviours that they need to learn well.

We have identified key objectives to revisit and consolidate in each phase to ensure our pupils are ready to progress to the next stages of their learning. We will implement this by identifying curriculum materials which can be meaningfully combined while preserving subject integrity; prioritising key objectives integral to progression and creating opportunities for blended learning to address learning objectives through remote teaching and learning via Seesaw/Tapestry.

At Langley we pride ourselves on the curriculum and support we provide for our pupils to ensure we meet all their social and emotional needs. The focus for school in the autumn will be upon ensuring that pupils are ready to learn and as such social and emotional learning will be prioritised. The act of recovery is at least as much an emotional and social one as it is academic, and our ability to recognise and plan for this will be at the heart of our learners’ eventual success

You will find links to our recovery documents on the right of this page.
