Coronavirus Advice & Information


21st June 2021:  Good morning everyone. You may have heard that two local primary schools in our neighbourhood have had to close temporarily due to a COVID outbreak. Symptoms are headache, sore throat and fatigue. If anyone in you family shows these symptoms, please carry out a COVID test and do not come to school until you have the results.

Please wear your mask on site and do not block entrances. We all need to work together to keep everyone safe. This variant is more contagious, but no more harmful to young people. I would encourage all adults to have the vaccine. Thank you to you all for your great team work and community spirit. 

COVID Risk Assessment 2021

Catch-Up Funding

At YFPS we have pledged to ensure all children who need catch up support in each year group will be provided for. We have used the funding to release our most experienced teachers from classroom responsibility and we have employed two NQTs to run the classes since the first day of Autumn term. Three experienced teachers run Catch-Up maths, reading, writing or phonics lessons at least three times a week for small groups of children who have been identified by data analysis. The classes are following the same format and syllabus as the class lessons but at a slightly slower pace. This has enabled children to develop their confidence and understanding of any gaps they have developed due to COVID19. We are measuring the impact of this intervention during November and any tweaks will then be made. We will be using PIRA and PUMA tests to measure impact comparing this data to our results from July 2020. We are also using Accelerated Reader Star Reader tests to gather a reading age and low stakes quizzes to help children embed their learning. We are using White Rose Maths, colourful semantics and our own reading programme based on Letters and Sounds resources to support the learning.

After assessing writing progress this term using our monitoring process, we have also decided to run half hour daily sessions on developing key writing skills in specifically identified year groups.
