Case Study:

Steve Graham, Senior Teacher: Personal Development & Outdoor Learning
Caedmon College Whitby
 
Practice:
Steve has run residential trips for Years 7 and 8 whereby students experienced self-development through adventurous learning; worked on the development of a 'KED' (Swedish-style education) curriculum for KS3 and focused on developing the 'whole' child. He also developed enrichment and extra-curricular learning opportunities through skate park visits, climbing, cycling and a beach cleaning project.As part of his commitment to engage local community groups, he organised enrichment days with the Fire Brigade, Mountain Rescue, Yorwaste and RAF Cadets; Furthermore, he coordinated a literacy project for vulnerable learners and leadership training for Yr 12 students.
 

Impact:
The project has demonstrated a large reduction in out of class exclusions for targeted groups, an increase in self-confidence and esteem and a noticeable difference to attitudes to both school and learning. The development of learning opportunities outside of the classroom has led to increased enjoyment of school, improved attendance and an ability to produce genuine inspired work in the community. For most of the visits to school, the students themselves have had to plan, organise and invite guests and co-ordinate the visits. This has given them much pride in their school. Equally beneficially, they have had to cope with real problems, guests cancelling, arriving late, deadlines to get the report in the newspapers.
