Going from Primary to Secondary school
Freshen Up is our new transition holiday program for young people who are in transition from primary to secondary school in Birkenhead, Wirral, Merseyside. We are proposing to work with our local primary schools and our local secondary school, Birkenhead Park School. The primary schools will identify those who are moving on up to the senior school, and who may be struggling with the move up to that setting.
We see this as an engagement process by which the young people come along and build rapport and trust with our Centre staff and then have a source of support throughout their transition to senior school and beyond.
We want to provide 26 weeks activity based support for them on a 3 day a week basis, throughout the school holidays of their final 6 months at junior school.
The sessions will run from 10am to 3pm and will be staffed by qualified and DBS checked youth workers and also volunteers.
