At Brooklands Primary School, we are proud to be a member of The Children’s University Trust. Children’s University is a charity that works in partnership with schools to develop a love of learning in children. They do this by encouraging and celebrating participation in extra-curricular activities in and outside of school.
Research shows that participation in extra-curricular activities can positively impact on attainment, increase a pupil’s positive identification with school, and build self-confidence and resilience. Children who participate in Children’s University have the opportunity to learn in a rich range of contexts, experience new places, visit universities and attend their own graduation ceremonies.
At Brooklands Primary School, raising children’s aspirations is important to us and we aim to develop the understanding that learning can be “…a satellite navigation system to better places in life…”. It is our hope that our partnership with Children’s University will help promote a love of learning, help develop links with organisations in the local and wider community, and continue to develop children’s confidence and aspirations for the brightest of futures.
