LEAP is a unique student leadership programme that enables older pupils to take responsibility for mentoring, training and supporting younger pupils
Nothing bothers me about secondary school now, thanks to XLR8.
I have seen a significant difference in my student over the past few weeks, her confidence during class has developed immensely.
The students had increased focus in lessons that were specially related to the career and college paths that they discussed with the Health Mentor...I would be looking to engage students with the programme again in the future.
Thank you for all the support you have given these students. It has been very valuable. All are exceeding expectations, have secured post 16 placements and all have a career path in mind.
My mentor helps me calm myself down and feel comfortable in the classroom.
He’s really enjoying spending time with the Health Mentor and when he comes home, he tells me how much he is enjoying school.
The biggest impact on the school has been the addition of an Evolve Health Mentor.
Working with Evolve has been fantastic! We have been able to measure the children's wellbeing using the Evolve wellbeing compass and then target specific interventions to promote positive wellbeing across the school.
There has been no negative feedback from my son, no "this is boring" or "I don't want to go", so whatever you're doing it's working well.
She was quite apprehensive at first about attending at all, but by the end of the first day she was happy and relaxed and I could tell she really enjoyed herself.
The course was a great opportunity to make lots of friends and get used to some school rules and meet new teachers. It was a great experience
I think I have improved my drawing skills and made a lot of new friends
Evolve have been very professional, very flexible and adapted to our needs, well organised and very stress free for me.
All the members of staff have been so enthusiastic, helpful running the team & getting to know the children, big smiles everyday & welcoming our children in.
The LEAP programme has made such a difference to our school and I urge all senior leaders to consider using it in their school.
XLR8 has added a new dimension to our curriculum and offer to parents. We now have access to pupils for extra learning time during the year and the flexibility to focus on broader outcomes which help to underpin the educational success of our school.
