As lockdown restrictions are lifted, now is the perfect time to restart, rediscover and reconnect. Did you know, our Outreach Programme is eligible for any Pupil or Summer Catch Up Premium.

Our Outreach Programme can;

Build Confidence – belief in the powers, trustworthiness, or reliability of oneself. Achieving a new height on our mobile climbing wall despite initial fears or reservations.

Encourage Perseverance – persistence in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement. Hitting the central target in our Archery activity.

Promote Determination – very strong desire to achieve a goal. Hands on experiences designed to provide difficult yet achievable tasks.

Demonstrate Responsibility – to act or decide on one’s own initiative with consideration to others.  Develop an awareness of the world around us and the consequences of an action brings a better understanding and enhanced appreciation of our surroundings.

Inspire Trust – place confidence and instinctive unquestioning belief in someone or something. Encourage an understanding of how trust plays a key role in working with others.

Strengthen Teamwork – coordinated effort on the part of a group acting together in the interests of a common cause. Demonstrate an insight into the benefits of working together.
