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.
Interestingly we know what works; what makes the difference...
- Opening early with breakfast.
- 'Every Child a Reader'.
- 'Every Child Counts'.
- Brilliant teaching.
- Small nurture groups.
- Study support.
- Family support through STEPS.
- Enterprise activities.
- Sport and activity.
