Summer School Funding 2021


Total funding received: £14,880


St Cuthbert Mayne School used the DFE summer school funding by investing in an external organisation to provide activities related to transition for all children in year 6 joining the school in September 2021. The programme was delivered by Big Steps and took place over the summer holidays. Pupils are provided with a smooth and extensive programme where they then arrive on their first day of school excited about the next chapter of their education, rather than feeling apprehensive about the journey ahead of them.


The programme was both educational and fun with curiosity central, to inspire pupils to learn. The timetable was interactive, challenging and had clear outcomes. There was a clear focus on identifying the needs of each pupil and then working with them to maintain their literacy and numeracy levels so that gains in primary school were not lost in transition.


The number of children in attendance at St Cuthbert Mayne School was ~ 93 out of a year 7 projected cohort of 185
