Pilgrim Minibus

Celebrating Success

Following last week’s article about Duke of Edinburgh, We are pleased to share the news that DA and SB have been invited to Buckingham Palace as part of the Dof E celebrations in May.

On 22nd March staff and pupils at the Sleaford base walked a mile for Sports relief. They also held a cake sale at break and participated in a mile of pennies (needless to say it wasn’t quite a mile!!). Total raised came to £67.50. Many thanks to JD for organising this and to those staff who baked cakes to sell.

 The career’s fair held in Lincoln on Monday 19th March was a big success. The workshops on CV writing and interview techniques etc were particularly well received by our pupils.

Celebrating Success - D of E Update

On Wednesday 7th March we had the official ceremony that declared us an official centre for the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Mick Hoare who is the East Midlands Operations Officer for Dof E came to the Sleaford base and met with some of the pupils who have embarked on bronze so far and then presented the framed certificate. We were pleased to have governors in attendance in this occasion too.

Celebrating Success - Visit to Bunkers Care Home

Just after half term, two of our year 11 pupils from Lincoln, ET and MH, visited the Bunkers Care Home as part of their Health and Social care course. The pupils sat with around 10 residents and completed craft activities with them. They achieved their objectives for the BTEC course but also were able to use the opportunity to grow their confidence in visiting new places and their communication skills in meeting new people. This is what therapeutic education looks like in practice! We received very positive feedback from the care home who would like to be able to host more of these visits. Many thanks to HS (RSO) for accompanying the girls and to NB for setting up the experience.

BLESMA Charity Workshop

The school has arranged for a visit from the charity BLESMA, the limbless veterans, to deliver free workshops from veterans to inspire and motivate pupils. 

The aim of the workshop is:

  • To inspire pupils with the BLESMA members stories.
  • Understand what it is to overcome adversity and promote how to be resilient.
  • Encourage healthy behaviours.
  • Improve confidence and self-esteem, and make individuals realise that we all go through tough times.
  • Improve interpersonal relationships and skills.
