Walking along Regent’s Canal this week, having completed a presentation for http://www.evolvesi.com/ and http://www.evolvesi.com/projects/project-hero/ , my thoughts were future-shifting to to the summer. Well, the sun was shining, I had removed my jacket and tie…it really was THAT warm, AND Beth Orton was playing through the wires so life felt good.
That evening, I was checking my e-mails and found a link to: http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/pupilsupport/premium/b00204241/ssprog
The Summer Schools programme for disadvantaged pupils is open to all secondary schools. The first Summer Schools of the programme take place during the 2012 school summer holidays, with a budget of £50m.
This programme aims to help disadvantaged pupils make a successful transition from primary to secondary school. Schools can claim Summer School funding for:
- pupils who are registered for free school meals (FSM)
- pupils who have been looked after in public care continuously for six months.
For further information, follow the link above. Please note the deadline for submitting the opt-in form is 5pm Monday 30 April 2012.
If you need ideas for how best to run a Summer Camp, http://www.evolvesi.com/ will be more than willing to help in terms of providing high quality Health Mentors to deliver innovative programmes that will enthuse, educate and activate students.
These programmes will build on the proven success of the outstanding transition project, Compass: Finding Your Direction, https://brynllewellyn.wordpress.com/compass/
So if you work in a secondary school, remove your jackets, walk in the sunshine, listen to music that warms the soul, future-shift and get those applications in…
