Passport 2 Success
Following on from the success of last years Commonwealth Passport Project, I am happy to announce we are re-launching it again this year for Year 7 pupils and brand new for this year an 8 week primary passport too.
This academic year it will be known as Passport 2 Success and we are happy to confirm the amazing team at NYOLS Bewerley Park Outdoor Education Centre will once again be supporting the project, giving selected pupils life skills along with life long memories to kick start their journey at Secondary School.
As with last year all the activities will link in to the School Games Values and pupils will experience some directed activities as well as completing some of the activities with family and friends.
Last year our project was recognised as one of the top 3 projects in the UK by Sport England and Youth Sport Trust at the Impact awards in August 2022. By using pupils voice we were able to determine 61% of pupils said they felt more confident doing activities on their own or with friends with a further 39% of pupils saying they were both ready but also still a little nervous.
74% of pupils said they were ready to try more challenging activities with a further 26% said they think they are ready.
A huge part of our project is to collect pupils voice.You can see their story on the video below.
