This year, all primary schools can offer a summer programme for pupils with complex needs and those at risk of educational disadvantage.
A school-based programme provides a more holistic experience for pupils and helps keep the connection with school and peers.
There are three in-school programmes at primary level for 2022:
Summer Programme 2022: letter to primary schools
2022 Summer Programme for all primary schools: overview
Guidance for Teaching and Learning will be published in the coming weeks.
Summer Camp Programme 2022: teachers' handbook
Schools that wish to participate in the 2022 Summer Programme must register through an online sanction portal.
Schools are asked to complete and submit this form indicating participation on or before Thursday 9 June 2022 at 5pm.
You can watch a number of principals, teachers and school staff talk about their experiences of running the summer programme in the past from the link below:
