transform learning culture
close the attainment gap
exceed expectations

Mind the gap!

We all understand that learning and development are not automatic. Early intervention is essential and Pupil Premium funding from the DfE provides schools with the resources to support their most vulnerable pupils to exceed expectations.

Every young person is capable of becoming a confident, resilient learner who believes they can achieve.

Summer Schools

Aimed at: Key Stage 2 (KS2) Key Stage 3 (KS3) Transition

The Summer Schools programme is funded by the Department for Education to support disadvantaged pupils in making a successful transition to secondary school.

Funding is used to deliver a one or two-week school based programme to develop the key Personal, Social, Cognitive and Creative skills of pupils to ensure they begin secondary school as happy, confident learners who believe they can achieve. This has a significant impact on attendance, behaviour and achievement.

How we can support your school

Create offers two Summer Schools solutions:

A. Working in partnership
We work in partnership to deliver Summer Schools on school sites to develop the essential Learning Skills pupils require to begin secondary school as happy, confident learners who believe they can achieve. Summer Schools have had a significant impact on attendance, behaviour and achievement.
Last few places remaining for 2015! Deadline: 17th April 2015

B. Summer Schools Training
Due to high demand we are now providing comprehensive training throughout the country to support schools and teachers to deliver their own Summer Schools. This includes: 2-days training, support, resources, impact reports and online development tools to track and monitor pupils’ progress.

Create can support you to deliver a powerful, personalised Summer Schools programme to meet your specific needs.
Training dates to be announced soon.
