Summer Half-Term Network Update

A huge congratulations to all our pupils and teachers who have completed SATs.  We understand it’s a challenging period, and it can often feel like the pressure is building. The Hub of Hope is a fantastic resource for support, with over 9,000 local, regional, grassroots and national services listed. It’s the UK’s go-to mental health support signposting tool.

Our Impact

As summer approaches, we’re thrilled to see so many business volunteers engaging with our schools and sharing their stories. We love hearing about these experiences, so please do share them with us!

Manor Beach Primary School hosted an exceptional careers event. Connie, a pupil at the school, made us chuckle with her surprising revelations about the world of work. Watch the video below to find out more.

School Spotlight

Grove Street Primary School is collaborating with the Regenda Group as part of a regeneration project that will bring over 70 new affordable homes to New Ferry, Wirral. Grove Street’s pupils shone brightly as they joined representatives from Wirral Council and Homes England during the launch event.

The pupils are participating in projects to name some of the new buildings, with an exciting site visit planned to learn more about the built environment.

Teacher Tip: Is there any construction activity happening near you? Reach out to the companies involved— They’ll likely have social value commitments and often get involved with local schools with insightful experiences.

This Little Light

Congratulations to Beau, a Year Six pupil at Crosshall Junior School! Beau dreams of becoming a Palaeontologist. Thanks to Mr. Murphy, she and her classmates recently joined our Career Conversation with two Palaeontologists. Beau was inspired by the talk and created a jigsaw piece about it, now proudly displayed on the school’s ‘Future Me’ wall.
