-Summer School 2021
In August 2021, we invited all new Year 7 students, along with a collection of Year 8s to 11s, to enjoy a huge variety of amazing activities, including workshops in English, Maths and Science.
The ‘Camps’ took place over nine days and were offered to students as follows:
Year 7 & 8 – Three day Transition, Wellbeing, Catch-up and Peer Buddy courses x 2
Year 8 into 9 – Two days Wellbeing ‘Bootcamp’
Year 7 and 8 – Two day ‘Bushcraft’, nature-appreciation and wellbeing courses x 2
All courses were run by external providers and staffed by Glossopdale Teachers/TAs/Support Staff.
All activities and resources were funded by the DFE Initiative for Summer Schools 2021.
External Providers £41,052.00
Total Expenses £65, 795.25
The Summer Schools were well-attended with 306 students attending in total. The breakdown of this was 208 students not entitled to the Pupil Premium and 98 students entitled to the Pupil Premium – this is 32.03% pp attendance, which exceeds our school average.
