Following the National Lockdown in March, the government has acknowledged the negative educational impact that this has had on pupils’ learning and wellbeing as well as the gaps that is has created in pupils’ knowledge and understanding. When our pupils returned in September, for some it was the first time that they had been taught in the classroom by a teacher for nearly six months. Fortunately, here at Holly Trees, we were able to get several year groups back for at least two days a week in the summer term. Disadvantaged pupils have been especially affected in addition to Lockdown, there are a range of additional factors for this group when remote learning at home.
