While we can show up and deliver a workshop, the research is unequivocal: ongoing engagements are much more beneficial than one-off activities. We’re therefore concentrating on working with partner schools to develop long-term relationships.
In its first year, the project worked with an initial group of fifteen schools from across the North-East. In our second year we expanded rapidly, working with a total of thirty schools through to the end of our initial three-year period.
For 2017-18 we’ve rejigged a little, and continue to work closely with around 30 schools. Some of our partners are multi-site Academies, which makes a precise total tricky!
