Support for Schools – Providing for Key Worker’s Children and Vulnerable Young People

19th Mar 2020

With the latest announcement from government, regarding school closures, we would like to once again highlight our commitment and ability to support schools, if required. Please see below information regarding ways in which we may be able to support individual schools and collaboratives, in dealing with planning for staying partially open.

We have a couple of coaches available, who were due to be in schools in the coming weeks and we are happy to come and help in schools free of charge, in the lead up to Easter, while things are so uncertain. We can provide a wide array of activities and cover various curriculum areas. Including; PE, Sports, Geography, Science, Creative Arts and Performing Arts.

We appreciate that schools are only now formulating plans for the Summer Term and you may be considering working in clusters, to cater for the pupils that still require provision. We also appreciate that the situation is dynamic and could change drastically in a matter of days. It may be that schools have enough staff to cater for the number of pupils still requiring daily education. However, if staffing is an issue, we want to extend an offer of help. Our versatility, experience and reputation in the education sector, makes us uniquely prepared and ready to assist.

We are thinking ahead to the Easter holidays and already talking with school collaborative, about what part we may play in assisting those young people and families, across the region, that still require daily provision.

If you have any questions or ideas of a role we can play in supporting you and your families, during these difficult times, please do not hesitate to get in touch.



"Children's University has helped some of our children walk tall and believe in themselves. They have discovered their strengths, made new friends and aimed high."

Mrs Julia Ashton • Head Teacher St Mary's Blackbrook Catholic Primary School (St Helens)

"Last year, during sports week, we had a Quidditch workshop. It was brilliant. It was something completely different that really motivated and inspired the children to get active. The workshop ran brilliantly involving all the differing needs of the class. I have already booked for next year….it was so good! "

Mrs Justine Kellett • Head Teacher Queen’s Park C.E/U.R.C Primary School (St Helens)

"The Outdoor Learning twilight was a great success, expertly delivered by Joe. All staff joined in and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Joe was able to show how each activity could be adapted for all children from EYFS to Y6. A fabulous resource! Thank you."

Mrs Jan Cunningham • Head Teacher St Andrew the Apostle Catholic Primary School (Knowsley)

"I had been looking to develop our outdoor environment as a way to engage the children in skills that are generally lacking in many children these days. I arranged a training session with Enrich Education as well as the installation of our orienteering course. The children have all used the course and it has been great to see children who may not appear confident in a formal classroom environment really flourish in the outdoor world. Our recent Ofsted visit by an HMI was particularly complimentary about the schools attitude towards meeting the needs of all learners. Great guys, well organised and there to help all the way. We even had a slight change to our course which was attended to immediately."

Mr Danny MacAreavy • Head Teacher St John Bosco Catholic Primary School (Sefton)

"Quidditch has brought a new element of sport to our school, we are always looking for innovative and creative ways to engage the children in sport especially when utilising our sports premium funding and this experience has done that, it has been fantastic and delivered in such a quality way by Enrich Education. "

John Casson • Head Teacher Hope Primary School (Knowsley)

"The Outdoor Learning was a fantastic, fun experience both for children and staff. It covers more than one area of the curriculum in a engaging and active way, which is always a good thing!! Well worth doing and the staff who deliver it are brilliant!"

Mrs Jeanette Grundy • Head Teacher St Leo's and Southmead Catholic Nursery & Primary School (Knowsley)
