ten hints

Don’t do it on your own!

Gain support from senior leaders. Enable others to become active partners in the programme

Ten hints

Build it in don’t bolt it on!

Link your objectives to other plans i.e. SDP, school, partnerships/cluster development plans

Make sure there is something for everyone!

Provide a quality programme that is accessible to, and provides opportunities for ALL (including staff and governors)

Know why you are providing it!

Be sure about what you are trying to achieve and that this is in the best interests of the young person, the school and the community

Talk to others!

Consultation needs to be ongoing and widespread, students, staff and community all need to have a say

slide25

Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it.
