Blended / Home learning

Rationale

Calthorpe Academy has put the child’s wellbeing at the centre of our thinking when designing our recovery curriculum. We acknowledge that learners will have had different experiences during periods spent out of school. However, the common thread running through all of this is the loss of routine, structure, friendship, opportunity and freedom; leading to increased level of learner anxieties.

We know that an anxious learner is not in a place to learn effectively.  So with this in mind, Calthorpe Academy has thought about the most effective way to restore learners’ knowledge, skills and mental wealth.

The principles of the recovery based approach is defined by educational evidence and accompanied by parental, staff and learner views. As a result for Autumn term, we will be focusing on the following four areas:

Area 1

Area 3

Supporting the learners to build positive relationships with others

Supporting learners to re-visit learning and then build upon their knowledge, skills and understanding

Area 2

Area 4

Supporting learners to manage feelings and their behaviour, whilst re-establishing routines and structures

Supporting learners with their physical health and wellbeing
