Kick Start Autumn Term 2018
Inspiring Barrow Kick Start programme began its third year with children from 12 local primary schools taking part.
The program works to improve communication, resilience, teamwork, leadership and self- efficacy with children in their preparation for SAT’s and transition to secondary school.
The children are collected from school (3 schools per night) and have the experience of visiting one of the secondary schools for the delivery of the programme.
Upon completion of the programme the children are offered the opportunity to have continued support by entering into the Mentoring Programme, where trained mentors from local business and education, support the children for the rest of the academic year.
My daughter has just completed the course, her confidence has improved alongside developing her communication and teamwork skills. I’m sure mixing with children from other schools will help her transition into secondary school in September. The awards evening and Xmas movie event were well planned and thoroughly enjoyable.
Fantastic programme my son loved being a part of it keep up the good work xxxx
