Literacy Scheme Boost!
Posted on: Monday 19th January 2015
This year as part of the build up to Children in Need Day, Stanwell was one of 50 schools in the UK invited to work with National Schools Partnership & Lloyds Bank Plc to provide research and feedback on classroom resources to raise awareness and money for Children In Need. The Year 7 team headed by Mr Baldwin and Misss Sterlini and supported by the Form Tutors delivered the resources in the pastoral lessons prior to the ‘Best Assembly Ever’ event on the 15th November in which Year 7 pupils organised a talent show featuring pupils from all year groups. On the day £3,000 was raised for Children and Need and Breast Cancer UK from using these resources. The National Schools Partnership donated £200 of Amazon vouchers to Stanwell School for taking part in the research.
It was decided that the money would be used to support Stanwell’s Literacy scheme, encouraging boys’ reading in KS3. The school librarian, Mrs Lewis, was quickly on the case and ordered the new books. The most popular so far is Russell Brand’s ‘The pied piper of Hamelin’!
