Over the last twelve months,
many children have struggled
not only academically, but also
in terms of their overall wellbeing,
Some schools seem powerless
to address this need, whilst
others see these coming months
as a unique opportunity.
I am heartened by the example
of our local school, which has brought
back a group of 14 year-olds
who have 'fallen behind'.
Over the next six weeks, the
teachers will be working with pupils,
(individually and in groups),
to improve their Maths and English
The aim is to support the whole person,
help each child to catch-up,
and for them to be ready for the
start of the new academic year.
This is a chilled-out Summer Club
with Pizza! Personal confidence
and team spirit are enhanced
as much as curriculum skills.
This initiative, with its positive
and empowering child-centred
approach, offers real help and support
to those children who need it most.
