Pupil Voice

The Children’s University

The academy is a member of Stoke Children’s University, supported by Staffordshire University. The scheme is continuing to flourish in school and is enjoyed and valued by pupils, parents and staff.

Up to July 2015, over 90% of all KS2 pupils had earned learning hours by taking part in after school clubs, taking on roles of responsibility in school or taking part in Family Learning and in-house family events. About half of these KS2 pupils achieved the Bronze Level Award or above and were proud to graduate in ceremonies hosted by Staffordshire University or delivered in school by university Staff.

Some pupils have progressed through to the Certificate Level, achieving 100 plus learning hours, whilst a few pupils are working at Diploma Level having achieved more than 230 Learning hours to date. Well done to all!

“Children’s University encourages us to spend more time learning new skills outside the classroom.” (Tyler)

“I am so proud to be part of the Children’s University. It is helping me to grow up. I am working hard to achieve my next award.” (Charlotte)

Parents said that the Children’s University initiative is:

“A fabulous opportunity to recognise and celebrate learning that often gets missed.” (S.Gibbins)

And an opportunity for pupils to:

“Further their learning, encouraging them to continue in Further Education when they are older.”  (R .Robinson-Collier)
