I was reading the Times Educational Supplement over the weekend and there was an article on the '24 hour school'...

We need to re-engineer our provision to encourage and support young people. We do need to think differently about how we engage young people in learning; how we develop our young people as passionate and powerful learners; how we get young people to understand that the keys to success are attitude, discipline and hard work.

What works?

  • Opening early with breakfast works.
  • Coaching and mentoring works.
  • Small nurtured groups works.
  • Study support works.
  • Family support through STEPS works.
  • Enterprise works.
  • Sport and activity works.
  • The arts and creativity works.

What else works?
