With grant funding from Urban Living Community Chest, we delivered an after school tuition programme for two groups of Year 5 pupils referred by Anglesey Primary & St Francis Primary schools. Sessions covering English & Mathematics were held at the well resourced local Cherry Tree Children’s Centre during week day evenings & Saturday afternoons between February and July 2009.
Other activities included parents’ meetings, advice sessions and pupil mentoring.
Children and their parents also took part in our Awards Event and Summer Trip to Blackpool.
The main outcome of the project was to bring local pupils and their families from schools with different majority demographics to take part in a community activity beyond the school run. And to reinforce positive perceptions of each other as families who share the same common value of striving for better opportunities for their children.
