During the school closures, Lincolnshire Teaching Schools Together recognised the substantial work that schools were facing in order to ensure their pupils and students could access high quality education and get back on track to meet curriculum expectations, achieve their individual potential, and to be ready for their next stage of education or employment. LTT, funded by LCC, worked together to provide the ‘Recover Lincolnshire’ programme of support for schools.
Virtual networks, access to resources and specialist support, and signposting of wider opportunities, provided leaders and teachers across Lincolnshire with a universally accessible toolkit. The recordings of the Recover Lincolnshire sessions are now available - click the links to view
The Thrive Network was a seminar session for leaders which ran in the Autumn term 2020. The 3 virtual sessions explored key themes of leadership in turbulent times and for recovery with focus themes including resilience and resourcefulness, trust and team, culture and curriculum.
In addition to the completion of the original 2019/2020 Mobilise strands all schools were given access to three additional areas:
- Recovery, Reset, Re-engagement for Learning Curriculum
- Making the Most of Funding for Tutoring
- Improving Literacy in Secondary Schools

The ongoing work of Confident Choices kept secondary schools and current professional partners engaged in the framework, and strengthened the secondary/FE partnership. Primary, special schools and alternative settings were added into the framework, enabling support for all children 4-18. Click here to read more.
English Curriculum Recovery
The focus was to provide a rapid response to recover reading, a core subject area that is key to achievement and success in the wider curriculum as well as central to the new framework, and links with the work of the English Hub. We explored how to ensure effective teaching and learning of reading to achieve progress and address the concern of widening vocabulary gap in FS, KS1 and KS2. Access to exemplification materials and moderation was provided to support with assessment of reading and demonstrate the standards and features of pupil’s work within expected standards, and an intervention programme - KS3 / KS2 – Reading Recovery – was also made available.

Maths Curriculum Recovery
The approach was to provide high quality expertise and practical support in terms of identifying and addressing gaps in learning for accelerated catch up. Schools, including small schools, were signposted to high impact programmes for subject development, including those available with the Maths Hub, with easy access to online resources, help desks and specialists.
