Mosaic’s work in primary schools has been praised once again by Ofsted, the UK’s schools inspectorate.
Fagley Primary School in Bradford, West Yorkshire is celebrating after recently being awarded an “Outstanding” rating across all areas of its of work. In amongst what is a glowing all-round report, Mosaic’s work in the school is given a special mention:
A special project for Year 6 pupils and their parents covers citizenship, careers, improving confidence and communication, global communities and cross-cultural understanding. Consequently, pupils are very well prepared for the transition to secondary school. Aspirations of pupils and parents are raised.
The “special project” is Mosaic’s pioneering Primary School programme that aims to equip young girls and boys with the skills required to connect education to work at an early age. Mentors from professional backgrounds act as role-models so that young people can aspire to careers in the widest possible range of sectors.
Mothers and fathers participate in lessons that raise their awareness of the importance of education and how to support their children through school and beyond.
Leah Larkin, Mosaic’s Regional Manager in Yorkshire said: “Not for the first time, Ofsted have commented on the effectiveness our Primary School mentoring programme. That the report says aspirations of pupils and parents are both raised having participated in the sessions is evidence that the hard-work of our wonderful team of volunteer mentors is having tangible, life-changing effects. I couldn’t be more pleased.”
