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.

Wellbeing Mark

Wellbeing Mark

The Pilgrim School is currently working towards achieving a special quality mark for mental health and wellbeing.  As part of this process we will be working with staff, pupils and parents about how they feel mental health and emotional wellbeing are thought of and supported across the school community.  This process will allow us to make judgements about how well we do this and help us to think about and plan what we can do to improve so that we are offering the best possible support in every aspect of the school community.
