Delivering successful results

Key to all successful and high achieving schools is the need to focus and deliver activities to pupils, which enable:

  • Activities which can be targeted to support specific groups of vulnerable pupils and their specific needs: to build resilience; to promote healthy relationships and communication between them and other pupils and family members; to support the most excluded: those with physical and mental health disabilities; young carers; pupil premium plus pupils; looked after and kinship children.
  • Inter-generational work and increased confidence and self-esteem: through shared activities such as gardening and crafts
  • Raised aspirations: through activities which open children’s eyes to their local neighbourhoods: through linkages with community organisations and services

Enhancing pupils’ skills and experience

Our team has the expertise and experience to be able to work with each group to deliver a wide range of activities, in a variety of formats to enhance the pupil skills and experience in areas they may have not worked in before. We deliver through varied formats and will aim each group towards being able to plan, prepare and take part in some of the chosen areas;

  • Breakfast and After School Clubs
  • Holiday Courses
  • Themed activities: single activities to meet a specific need identified by the school
  • Trips
  • Community events: involving families and/or communities coming together to celebrate
  • Consultations
