A COVENTRY academy has partnered with a national training provider headquartered in the city to provide a fun summer school to help learners catch up following an unprecedented academic year.
The Westwood Academy joined with PET-Xi to deliver a week of summer fun to compensate for time in the classroom lost to Covid.
Michael Irvine, The Westwood Academy deputy head, said: “We absolutely love working with PET-Xi – the team’s professionalism, skills and approachability make the whole learning experience a joy to be part of.
“Pupils get so much from this supplementary educational offer.”
PET-Xi has delivered intensive and immersive lessons covering maths and English and a number of enrichment activities to a group of year eight and nine pupils which both boost their knowledge and increase their confidence.
The summer school was funded by the government catch-up premium, launched to help pupils and disadvantaged young people catch up on missed education because of Covid-19.
Bob Pinner, PET-Xi’s National Education Strategy Manager, said: “We are extremely pleased to be working with The Westwood Academy to deliver a week of summer fun and education to pupils.
“It’s a fantastic way for the schools to make the most of the catch-up funding they have been awarded.”
