Case Study:
 
Laura Spradbruy and Amy Winterbottom, Learning Mentors
Bosworth Academy
 
Practice:
Laura and Amy have set up ‘Henrichment' which is a two-hour weekly session intended to benefit vulnerable students. The underlying aim is to develop transferable skills useful for personal development and the life beyond the classroom. The lessons are tailored to the needs of the students and incorporate interdisciplinary elements from other subjects. The intention of broadening horizons is realised through a combination of hands-on experiences, outdoor learning and involvement of the local community. As part of the weekly sessions students have previously visited local parks, farms and falconry centres. One of the highlights has been incubating fertilised eggs and raising two chickens who now reside at the Academy.
 
Impact:
‘Henrichment’ has given the students a sense of responsibility, purpose and pride. The students’ enthusiasm for the project has encouraged them to spend more time in nature which has inspired the creation of some truly beautiful work. As a result of increased attendance rates and motivation, students are more willing to participate in group work. Through the increased participation, students have become more confident communicators, which has had a positive impact on their whole education and supported the Academy's ethos of "No student will underachieve". The school has been delighted to witness how the students' individual characters have emerged throughout the weekly sessions.
