WHAT IS THE CURRENT SITUATION

The school is currently open to vulnerable students and those whose parents are Key Workers.

The area is currently in Lockdown.

 

HOW ARE WE TRYING TO KEEP THE SCHOOL SAFE

We are following Government and Public Health England instructions especially our emphasis that everybody has a responsibility to wash their hands regularly and practise good respiratory hygiene. 

On arrival all students and staff will use hand sanitiser and have their temperature taken.

Students and staff in school are to follow social distancing guidelines at all times.  We expect students to wear masks in corridors and on the stairs and we highly recommend that they wear them in all communal areas including classrooms.

Cleaning products will be available in all classrooms if needed, our Caretaker will provide additional cleaning of high-profile contact points.

 

catch up premium

Following the 2020 lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, schools have received an additional amount of money to provide catch-up support for those pupils that require it. At Rowhill School, in order to utilise this additional funding in the best possible way, we have considered closely the research and advice put forward by the Department for Education (DFE) and the Education Endowment Fund (EEF) and used timely assessments of both pupils’ academic and personal development needs to inform our decisions. The table below outlines our intentional spend with a rationale accompanying each decision.

Catch up funding -  planned expenditure
