Our workers and volunteers passion is to support the growth and development of young people in our schools and in order to fulfil our aims we are able to offer a broad package of curriculum related activities. These are explained below:

Sanctity of Life
This is an informal education voluntary lunchtime activity. It consists of an SMSC question. Students are invited to respond to an open ended question in survey form. Example questions used have been “What gives you hope in life?”, “Who are your role models”, “What is true forgiveness?”
We also provide in some schools, where requested, a lunchtime club which varies from a drop in format, to a more structured theme based activity session.
We offer an informal short term intervention program tailored to individual student needs. Sometimes we operate through a group mentoring format or sometimes on a One to One basis, depending on the needs of the young people referred to us. This is the one service, that we ask schools make a contribution for.
We are available to support schools in assemblies. We deliver imaginative and thought provoking presentations on both Christian and other topics such as British Values where requested.
We recognise the significance of a smooth transition between KS2 and 3 and to this end we provide a link between Year 6 and 7. Starting in feeder schools in year 6 we use a national resource called “It’s your move”. This is a booklet handed to students following a lesson/assembly setting with the intention of then reconnecting with students through Question Point in Year 7.

We also work with 6th form departments and colleges and have a range of options including provision of pastoral and mentoring support and help in preparation for university and working life.
