Detailed Information

School holidays are not always a time that children look forward to. In some cases, children miss the routine that school provides and spend time by themselves whilst parents are at work.  Many children come from backgrounds where money is tight – and therefore summer holidays are not filled with day trips and activity.  We can do something about that by providing holiday clubs that children enjoy and provide them with a vital routine.

With this Third Term activity, you will plan and deliver sessions to children or provide pastoral support. If you believe in narrowing the gap in attainment for children through positive reinforcement then this is the opportunity for you.

This activity also provides an opportunity for you to gain early access and support towards a career in teaching – with specific advice on applying successfully to a PGCE.
