Summer School


What is the Summer schools programme?


The Summer schools programme was set up in response to the impact that the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic had on pupils learning and in particular the transition from Primary to Secondary School. The aim of the Summer schools programme was to provide pupils with academic education and enrichment activities in order to mitigate the impact of lost learning.


At Debenham High School we aimed to ensure that our summer school programme was used by the pupils who would benefit most, and therefore targeted the new Year 7 cohort who had been unable to access our usual transition programme due to the pandemic. In addition to providing support with English, Maths and Science the funding was used as an opportunity for pupils to enhance their learning and wellbeing through a range of activities, including team, drama and sports activities.


The summer school was run for 5 days from the 16th-20th August. All students due to join year 7 in September were invited to take part, and 78 took up the offer. Funding of £8552 has been claimed to match the cost of running the sessions.


The funding enabled the school to:

*  Provide quality enrichment activities that benefitted pupils’ reading skills.
*  Provide activities that some pupils’ parents might not have been able to offer.
*  Ensure the pupil to staff ratio was appropriate for the successful delivery of the programme.
*  Develop relationships between pupils and staff as part of a wider transition offer, and familiarise
    students with the school.
*  Develop team skills and co-operation
*  Develop Science, Maths, Drama and Food Technology knowledge and skills
