Remote learning to continue for majority
Youngest pupils return to classroom.

Funder fof the Week
The Esmee Fairnbairn Foundation
Esmee Fairnbairn use outcomes and indicators of progress to track how grants, investments and their own actions contribute to our impact goals.
Why they think identifying key outcomes is helpful:
It helps to think through and express in tangible ways the intended results of the work.
It allows them to understand how the work might contribute to their impact goals.
If they award a grant, it gives them an agreed framework within which you and them can both monitor progress as the work proceeds.
