All young people of compulsory school age who are accepted into the Day Programme are tested on entry to assess their current level of ability in English, Maths and IT. Once these tests are completed, targets are set and progress is assessed termly. The number of weekly lessons each young person is offered in our core subjects of English, Maths and IT is dependent upon the number of days they attend the Day Programme. Some young people may also be offered the opportunity to achieve qualifications in ASDAN, and BTEC Workskills and follow a PSHCE curriculum.
Please read the following statement on our current remote learning provision. If you have any questions please get in touch with Nick Ridley, Teacher in Charge.
COVID-19 Catch Up Premium Funding
The DfE has allocated £650 million to be spent on ensuring all pupils have the chance to catch up because of disruption caused by Covid-19 and the school closures.
For young people with complex needs, schools should spend this funding on catch-up support to address their individual needs.
All the young people in the Hope Service day programme require social and emotional support, many have experienced challenging life events and present with a wide variety of very complex needs.
Many will have experienced significant periods of absence from school which has been exacerbated further by Covid-19 resulting in gaps in literacy, numeracy, language and learning.
The allocation of catch up funding to The Hope Service Day Programme to date is £4480
See attached letter which outlines what the catch up funding was spent on:
