In March 2020, as part of steps taken to fight the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), the government announced that all exams due to take place in schools and colleges in England in summer 2020 were cancelled. Under these circumstances, and in line with 2020 government accountability policies, Laurence Jackson School will not be publishing any school level educational performance data based on tests, assessments or exams for 2020.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, strategies to support those eligible for PP altered in response to the changing needs presented by the circumstances.

Additional barriers arising from school closure are being addressed in the PP funding strategy.
