All of the schools taking part in the initiative will be given a budget of £10,000 to deliver their Summer School designed to cover staff costs, cleaning and the provision of snacks/refreshments.

Resources for schools include: support for on-line resources to assist children going into Year 7 in the development of their literacy and numeracy skills and support for summer school provision for primary schools who wish to deliver these activities aimed at children going into Years 5, 6 and 7.

These measures are part of a £12m package of support which was announced by the Executive on June 30, 2020.

“In June, I announced plans for a package of measures to help children and young people through the summer period and beyond to help alleviate the impact of Covid-19 on children’s learning," explained Minister Weir.

“The summer months provide an important opportunity to help support this group of children and young people.

“The main purpose of these initiatives is to resource schools to support and build confidence in children, ensuring they are ready to engage in their learning."
