Identified priority Planned activity Cost Review date-W/b 8th Feb 2021 Review date-W/b 24th May 2021
No 1. Wellbeing workshops for all year groups.  These workshops will target a robust knowledge of mental health, and the practical skills to approach and understand it. Specifically, we will look at resilience, prioritising, stress management, and coping in times of uncertainty.  Due to effective engagement in remote learning during lockdown, gaps in knowledge has proven to be secondary to anxiety as our main barrier to learning. Approximately £12000 We would be looking to roll these workshops out for the entire school  
No 2. account which would allow staff to set assessments and capture meaningful assessment data remotely. Approximately £1100 (1255 EUR) Use it in the first instance with 13IB for mock exams from w/b 1st February.  For 13 A-Level and Year 11 it can be used later in the year.


No 3. Supply teachers to provide cover for teachers of practical subjects (Art, Music, Drama, DT).  Drop days with Years 9 and 10 to teach the skills that were missed during lockdown. £230 per supply teacher per day.  4 staff for 3 days:


It’s flexible as to when these days can be.  
No 4. Revision guides and subject subscriptions to support great teaching. Approximately £7900 to be distributed fairly across all curriculum areas Once the wellbeing costs have been finalised then an accurate figure for this strategy can be determined.
