Mablethorpe Primary Recovery Curriculum 2020


Here at Mablethorpe Primary, we have been considering our curriculum and the needs of our children and families following the coronavirus crisis. We have put together an exciting recovery curriculum using guidance from a researcher in education, ‘’Barry Carpenter.’’ We will be implementing for the first term a “recovery curriculum” which acknowledges that there may have been disruption to children’s learning and that this can contribute to pupil’s mental health, with anxiety, trauma and bereavement playing a large role.

To help overcome any issues your child may face, for the first term, we will be following a curriculum based on compassion. We will ensure this will be personalised to each of the children’s needs to re-engage and re-integrate children back into the classroom environment. To help us to do this we will be using a whole school scheme called Jigsaw during PSHE. We are building into our curriculum the following whole school themes that we feel are important to address. We will do this through daily teaching and collective worship in each class:

Learning how to reconnect and build positive relationships with others

Learning how to manage my feelings and behaviour

Learning how I can look after my physical and emotional wellbeing

Learning to enjoy and achieve

During literacy, we will us the following texts and video clips to continue to support the PSHE themes in school and help us to implement the recovery curriculum.
