Raising Aspirations

Raising Aspirations

In September 2019 our school became part of the North East Raising Aspirations Project. 

Research shows that children as young as 6 have ideas about what they can and can't do in the future and that gender and social stereotyping starts at a very early age.

As part of this project, we will help our children to link the learning they do in school with the world of work. The work will also help them to understand that they can be what ever they want to be.

As part of our school aim to raise the aspirations of the children, below, you will find some of the experiences our children have had to different careers. We now have many children who aspire to be engineers, police offiers, nurses, soldiers and vets. We can't wait to see what the Spring term holds in this area of oour schools curriculum!
