A belief in themselves that they can succeed School attainment: Combined

L4+ in English & Maths. 2009 2010 2011 2012 23% 50% 52% 80% The power of the Childrens

University has given us the confidence to take the next steps for the children at Harpfield. We are now moving towards a child negotiated curriculum. In a nutshell: The Children Decide What I know already....... What I would like to know....

How can I find out? Where can we visit to find out more? Themed activity days working with other schools in the community validated. Learning and having fun at

school and after school. Children, staff and parents learning together. And then of course its ........... Childrens University is a significant organisation and continues to grow meaning that many many more young people have even more opportunities to engage.

We hope that many of our graduates go on to become the next generation of Volunteers for Childrens University Without the volunteers and organisers who are involved with Childrens University our children would not be getting all of these amazing opportunities.

We would like to say a great BIG HEARTY THANKYOU to you all Making a difference and being part of the legacy.
