Remote Education

In line with our school’s vision and values we are committed to providing a meaningful and ambitious remote education to children whose attendance would be contrary to government guidance or law around coronavirus (COVID – 19). If a child is unable to attend school due to current guidance, remote education and pastoral support will be provided in line with our Remote Education Parent Guide


Safeguarding during COVID restrictions

Stillington Community Primary School is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all its pupils and staff.

Our Child Protection Policy has regard to the latest statutory safeguarding guidance in Keeping Children Safe in Education.

All North Yorkshire schools, including Stillington Community Primary School, follow the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (NYSCP) policies and procedures. You can access comprehensive safeguarding advice and tips for parents and carers through the NYSCP website.

If you are concerned about the safety or welfare of child or need some safeguarding advice or support during school hours, you can speak to your child’s class teacher or contact Mrs Moore, our Designated Safeguarding Lead direct. If she is not available, Miss Stringer is our Deputy Safeguarding Lead.

If you believe a child is in immediate danger, call 999

Covid Catch-up Premium Funding 2020/21

From September 2020 the government provided funding for schools to support children and young people to catch up. This included a one-off universal ‘catch-up premium’ for the 2020 to 2021 academic year which schools could use for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the curriculum expectations for the next academic year.

Our Covid-19 Catch-up Premium Strategy details how we intend to use the Catch-up Premium funding.


Recovery Premium Funding 2021/22

In February 2021, the government announced a one-off Recovery Premium as part of its package of funding to support education recovery. The Recovery Premium provides additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year. Building on the pupil premium, this funding will help schools to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting disadvantaged pupils.

Schools should spend this premium on evidence-based approaches to support pupils. In line with the Education Endowment Foundation’s pupil premium guide, activities should include those that:

  • support the quality of teaching, such as staff professional development
  • provide targeted academic support, such as tutoring
  • deal with non-academic barriers to success in school, such as attendance, behaviour and social and emotional support

Like the pupil premium, schools can:

  • spend the recovery premium on a wider cohort of pupils than those who attract the funding
  • direct recovery premium spending where they think the need is greatest

Schools must show how they are using their recovery premium effectively:

  • by reporting on their use of recovery premium as part of their pupil premium strategy statement
  • through inspections by Ofsted - as part of these inspections, inspectors may discuss plans schools have to spend their recovery premium funding

Our Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2021/22outlines how we intend to spend the funding in this academic year (2021/22)
