Transition Summer Schools

MADE are offering our services in helping to deliver a summer school programme for the pupils who will be joining schools in September 2013.

This programme is funded by the DfE and allows schools to deliver 1 or 2 week summer schools, which supports FSM and LAC pupils to make a sucessful transition from primary to secondary school.  There is up to £250/week/pupil availabe to schools to deliver this programme.  The deadline for applying is 31/5/2013.

Over the last decade MADE have developed a strong track record of working with schools to engage young people, for example: 

  Our City Builder Academies offer students three days experience on an intensive design project and an introduction to careers in the built environment work.

  Our Creative Communities project was shortlisted for a Homes and Communities Agency academy award for 'Investing in Young People' for its innovative approch to engaging and inspiring. 

  MADE is recognised with a Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge and is an Arts Award Welcome organisation. 

  We work with teachers to use the built environment as a resource for curriculum and whole-school learning and we think this could work well in the context of summer schools. 

Our idea is that the school building and grounds can be used as an inspiring and adaptable resource; proving a varied but accessible context for activities, stimulating learning across the curriculum as well as being used to develop skills in creativity, problem solving, decision making and participation.
