We believe in offering the schools we work with more than just a quality supply of teaching staff and excellent service. We also help our schools improve their pupils’ learning environment and experiences through sponsorship of activities, regular competitions and volunteering in schools to help out and get to know them better.
We run creative and educational competitions throughout the year, giving pupils the chance to win prizes for themselves and their schools. Past competitions and prizes have included:
National Poetry Day – win a creative workshop with a professional poet
World Book Day – win book vouchers
Roald Dahl Day – win a trip to see a Roald Dahl play
Out and About Photography – win framed prints of the best images.
We sponsor a number of school sports teams, providing their kit as well as arranging inter-school tournaments. For example, we host a girls’ football tournament in conjunction with Durham Women’s Football Club for secondary schools in the North East, alongside training sessions with the players.
We regularly run incentive schemes around areas such as behaviour, attendance and reading to encourage pupils to set and reach their goals, with prizes for those making the biggest efforts.
For more information about these activities, please get in touch with your consultant or local branch.
