HAJC6 Recovery Curriculum- Key Stage 4 

All subjects have delivered a ‘Recovery Curriculum’, identifying gaps in learning due to the lockdown, with subjects adapting their curriculum to ensure no student is left behind. Wellbeing is also a central focus. 

Our HAJC6 Recovery Curriculum takes a three-tiered approach in order to best support students and staff:

Tier 1- Holistic Recovery (a universal offer made to all students and staff)
Tier 2- Focused Recovery (based on individual needs) 
Tier 3- Deep Recovery (longer period of recovery and specialist support)

  • Upon their return to school all student in Key Stage 3 and 4 spent the day within their tutor groups. Time was allocated to help students understand the changes to the school space (e.g. staggered starts, routes in and out of school, zoned teaching areas/social spaces) and establish safe boundaries and practices (e.g. physical distancing, hygiene requirements).
  • Activities upon first return to the academy were fully planned by the recovery curriculum group and focused on re-establishing relationships, building a sense of community, routines and skills for learning.
  • Wellbeing checks were completed by all students and any referrals were passed by tutors to Pastoral Leaders.  This helps the academy to check what has changed over the summer or gain an insight as to the lived experiences of new students. Information from initial wellbeing check shared with tutors and teaching staff where appropriate.
  • Assemblies – initial assemblies via Microsoft Teams focusing on reconnecting and building a whole school culture, based on TRUE values, that is right for recovery and reignition of learning. Moving on to a focus on relationships and community and content, with content tailored to year groups 10-11 (key stage 4) on the basis of student voice.
  • Weekly tutor slots allocated to students in year 10 and 11 to focus on looking ahead to mock exams. 
  • CPDL for staff to raise awareness of issues that have impacted on student wellbeing and how to spot signs of trauma/loss in order to make referrals to Pastoral Leaders.
  • Cultural Capital tutor sessions focus on the very best of community spirit and resilience demonstrated both locally and nationally.
