The Lambeth Schools Partnership is running a 2 year project called 'Raising the Game'. Raising the game is a project which has been put together to raise the achievement of Black Caribbean pupils in Lambeth. Whilst all pupils do well in Lambeth compared to the attainment and achievement of pupils nationally, our black Caribbean pupils do not do as well as their peers and even though this is a national issue, we are trying to target it locally.
Schools have been chosen to work with us on a variety of initiatives based on detailed research, as to what makes a difference. In every Lambeth school cluster, there is at least one school that is taking part in the project. The participating schools will regularly feed back to their cluster on the progress of the project.
One of the initiatives which we have already carried out was an event called Aim High; we invited different motivational speakers to speak to the children and give them aspirations for their future. https://vimeo.com/297069036 This video shows a snapshot of what some of the days looked like and some of the children’s feedback.
Some of the other strands of the Raising The Game project are:
- Headteacher coaching
- Parental engagement
- Mentoring for pupils
- Reviewing Behaviour policies
- Developing a toolkit to create an inclusive diversified Curriculum.
