Recovery & Catch-Up Curriculum

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges to schools and their communities and its impact has been experienced by most of us. For our young adults, there has been a sense of loss of routine and also in opportunities to learn without disruption, to say the least.  As schools reopen fully this academc year to all students, we at Kingsdale Foundation School remain committed to reengaging our learners with their formal education, rebuilding the learning culture that lies at the heart of the school and enabling students to catch-up on lost learning, knowledge and skills.

At Kingsdale, our Recovery Curriculum is designed to inspire and engage our students in the love of learning.  Please access the ouline of the school’s multifaceted approach to the academic Recovery Curriculum here.

The well-being of our community is at the core of the Recovery Curriculum at Kingsdale.  Please access the school’s Pastoral Recovery Plan here.

What we teach in everyday lessons has been substantially revised as part of our approach to delivering a successful Recovery Curriculum.  'Curriculum maps' for all subjects have been reviewed and adapted in light of identified gaps or areas of regression in student learning and reflect proposed changes GCSE and A Level specifications and assessments. These approaches also consolidate the key essential knowledge and skills required for success each subject.  You may access the refreshed Recovery Curriculum maps for any particular subject in this section by selecting the subject name from the left hand menu choice.

In addition, the school has organised a series of extra recovery and catch-up sessions to build the confidence and academic progress of our students in different subjects. The intervention programme for Year 11 & 13 students aims to help students revise the units of study in the GCSE/A Level curriculum, focus on exam style questions and build knowledge and skills required for success in the various subjects. Intervention is offered online via the blended learning model and is available to our students throughout the course of this academic year.  COVID secure on-site sessions are offered alongside wider access online sessions delivered via Microsoft Teams.
