A large part of our vision at Winsor has always been to develop the whole child through an engaging curriculum in a safe, nurturing learning environment; taking into account our diverse community.
In Newham, we have witnessed the effect COVID-19 has had in our community, since the start of the pandemic and continues to do so as we look towards the future.
As a school, we regularly revisit and adjust our risk assessment, based on current guidance and information. Below you can find information on the Coronavirus Catch up Premium, as well as useful links for parents/carers and families.

How it is intended that the grant will be spent
Through assessment and teacher expertise, gaps in each cohort have been identified.
1) Intervention will be provided for children across afternoons by an additional member of staff linked to each year group.
2) Tutors are/have been recruited to deliver additional teaching and input for ‘Progress’ children in small groups. These sessions will be conducted during extended hours so that children are not withdrawn from quality first teaching in English and Maths.
The interventions will focus specifically upon the gaps identified. To scaffold and structure interventions- sessions will draw on materials within Learning By Questions. Additional Lexia licences have also been allocated across the school.
In the Autumn term, interventions will be targeted to ‘Progress’ children. They have been identified as currently working towards age expectation (WTS) but have previously (Autumn 2019) been assessed as working at age expectation (EXS or a score of 100+) Staff expect that these children will be able to make accelerated progress as they have previously demonstrated capability as well as established learning behaviours.
How the effect of this expenditure on the educational attainment of those pupils at the school will be assessed
Each year group will have targets for each term which will incorporate accelerated progress for the target pupils. It is expected that the percentage of children working at age expectation will increase each term. Over the autumn term, this is expected to be an increase of 20%
Children will be assessed against standardised tests each term.
As a school, we are committed to following the most up to date guidance and advice in relation to Coronavirus and the running of our school The safety, mental health and well-being of our pupils, families and staff is at the heart of all decisions we have taken and continue to take during this pandemic.
