At Dean Field we take active steps to reduce teacher workload and improve wellbeing. One of our strategies is to allow all our teachers to take their PPA time together, along with all the other teachers within the Family of Learning Trust.
On Friday we close at 1.10pm and those pupils who stay for ‘after school clubs’ take part in a number of enrichment activities which are run by our highly skilled Teaching Assistants or external coaches. These enrichment activities include: homework club, arts and crafts club, multi skills sports club, dance and yoga clubs, lego club and computing club.
Due to current guidelines in place around COVID-19, our Friday enrichment clubs have been suspended for the Autumn term. In their place we are now running class bubble based recovery sessions with a focus on covering lost learning due to the school closure period.
