Project Work

Project Work

Over the academic year we, in collaboration with the pupils,
design and engage in projects.

Project work is committed to following and embracing the 6 Nurture Principle. (Principles available on request.) A sense of belonging is
essential to progress with our pupils. Project work commits to modelling and engaging in healthy competition which encourages respect, trust, boundaries, team building and inclusive engagement. Project work supports relationships and opportunities for further progress within college.

Topics include:

  • Kite building
  • Foods around the world
  • Outdoor skills, survival and forestry
  • Dragons den
  • Design and marketing
  • Arts and creativity

The intended outcome is to support areas of social and emotional
development for our pupils so that they are psychologically
available for academic learning. Building trust, respect and learning
how to communicate effectively will discourage engagement in
negative activities and relationships external to college and will
support the change of entrenched perspectives that will maximize
life chances. Creating a sense of belonging and value encourages
engagement with the college and independently with staff and
peer groups. This project is committed to improving self-esteem,
self-confidence, resilience. Learning to communicate, share and
express effectively and through different creative methods aims to
also improve mental health and well-being.

Supporting and encouraging this development in our pupils will highlight their strengths in skills they may not be aware of or have been exposed to before which in turn can maximize future potential
and opportunities.
