Children's Statements

Head Teacher Statement
"We had an excellent response from years 5&6 children: they have been so enthusiastic they can't wait untill the end of school to go!"
"Children's University has given the children a chance to broaden their experiences and life skills."

Mentor Statement
"The pilot was excellent with good leaders who had a clear vision. The children were treated with consideration and were offered the chance to share the buzz of learning. There were so many positive aspects to the pilot and I felt it was a great privileged to be a mentor on it. I look forward to further involvement". - Don Bullock (Ex-Doncaster Primary Head Teacher for 20yrs)

 

Town Field Primary School

"Town Field Primary School was inspected in September 2009 under the new Inspection Framework for Schools. The Ofsted team were very interested to hear about our children’s engagement with Children’s University and were impressed with how this extra-curricular study provision had enhanced learning.

 

We were able to demonstrate how this enriched our curriculum and how it improved pupils’ attititudes to learning and raised their aspirations. It was considered to be an example of excellent practice and accepted as evidence under the category ‘The effectiveness of partnerships in promoting learning and well-being’, which was graded as outstanding.

 

We were delighted that Ofsted recognised the contribution that Children’s University makes and hope to continue strengthening our partnership even more!" - Helen Bellinger (Headteacher)
