Aims of the project
To offer specialist teaching and facilities for children, to enhance their learning, to help them to develop new skills, and to broaden their experience
Background and goals
It was proposed by our Art & Design Coordinator in the summer of 2017, and we wrote to all 6 local primary schools; three responded.
The project started in September 2017 and will run all year.
We provide one teacher, the plans and the equipment.
Partnership schools need to provide materials, a room and have staff in the lessons. Alternatively we can host small groups.
We will seek verbal feedback and a short written evaluation at the end of each term. We want to know what is working well and how we can improve the offer further for the children.
There is currently no involvement with the pupils at Stormont.
The children from Little Heath are in Years 3 / 4, in mixed gender groups. 30 pupils are taking part, in two groups of 15 - one group per half term.
Frequency and duration
The sessions take place weekly and run from 9.00am to 11.30am. This will continue for the rest of the year; sessions may take place at Stormont from January 2018.
