Duke of Edinburgh Logo

The school is now registered for a licence to deliver the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.  The DofE Manager will be DA and a pilot will be run at the Sleaford Base initially with approx. 4 – 5 of our current Y10 and below pupils.  Sessions will happen every week starting after Christmas to prepare them for their expedition.  If the pilot is successful we will roll out the award to other interested bases/pupils.

As of the 1st February 2018 we as a school became a Directly Licensed Centre by The Duke of Edinburgh Award. This means that we now have the ability to run and assess the award within our bases.

The D of E will be managed in our school by Dave Anderson (Learning Mentor) and lead by him and a team of Leaders to ensure we offer the best standards we can. We may also from time to time require some volunteers for specific parts.

The D of E is broken up into 3 levels and then each level has 4 or 5 sections. Due to the time scales and age ranges we have we will be aiming to have a Bronze and Silver group at each base. These levels are broken down as shown.

We will support our pupils through their D of E in every way we can but I will take some support from home. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to email me on david.anderson@pilgrim.lincs.sch.uk

Mental health Splatter Days!

The mental health splatter days have gone very well indeed. Pupils and staff alike were inspired by the stories of courage, determination and resilience that were told by BLESMA and Amy Winehouse survivors. A big thank you to NB for organising this.

World Book day!

Staff and students at all three bases celebrated World Book Day on Thursday 7th March.

There was a quiz and some funny shenanigans with book jackets as students selected book titles that reflected something about their personality.

This photograph demonstrates how this was done in the ASD centre. Fabulous!

Thank you to all staff who encouraged participation. There will be some photographs on display around school soon.

 

Comic Relief

Well done to the Lincoln base who raised £39 from a cake sale for Comic Relief. They also had a joke competition and our pupil DT won best joke, and our staff member SLwon worst joke. Big thanks to JD for organising this.

Pilgrim Sweatshirts!

Sweatshirts

The new Pilgrim sweatshirts have gone down a storm and been more popular than we could have imagined. It’s great that so many of our pupils (and indeed staff!) want to identify with our school community in this way. The pop up shop is open again until 10th April and orders can be made by following this link:

Football - Lincoln City Football Club Day

Six pupils from Lincoln and Amber Hill bases visited Lincoln City Football Club to play football on the afternoon of 6th March 2019.  They played with other pupils from YPLP in an 11 aside match.  All the pupils really got stuck in to the game and demonstrated some real skills.
