BeeFIT Schools Support
BeeFIT Schools is an innovative educational programme aimed at improving the attainment, attendance, behaviour and wellbeing of school children. This is done through delivery of active learning, physical engagement and achievement mentoring activities.
BeeFIT Schools is delivered in primary schools by specially trained members of the Bees in the Community staff.
Bespoke to each school we work with, and based on specific school objectives that are then monitored, evaluated and reported on at the end of the programme.
We will provide a specially trained member of staff to work in your school for between one and five days per week during the hours of 8am and 5pm. During this time, they are able to deliver a number of activities within their flexible and diverse role. These include a combination of:
- Extra-curricular activities (Wake up, Shake up morning clubs, After school clubs)
- Numeracy interventions (Active Maths)
- Literacy interventions (Premier League Reading Stars, Supporter 2 Reporter)
- Catch up sessions (literacy/numeracy)
