Learning is about much more than simply imparting knowledge. Therefore we use modern teaching methods to suit the individual learning needs and to build teamwork and a sense of social responsibility. We believe that it's vital to provide individual support for every student and in group sessions.
After a pilot programme in 2018, we are taking this forward in 2019 working with year 6 students over 3 schools assisting them in the preperation for the transition to secondary school through mindfullness and healthy sessions: identifying pupiles most vunerable of a poor transtion, doing group work to reduce stress and anixiety linked to starting a new school, understanding what is acceptable behaviour and the harm of social media. Teachers within the first week see a noticable difference in childrens behaviour including being more focuses and maintaining eye contact.
The programme has grown and we are now funded annually by Kent County Council Early Help and prevention to delivery Health and Wellbeing to the Folkestone District in 2020 & 2021
