|Pupils at Green Lane Primary School will be recognised for their “weekend” working in a bid to prepare them for the upcoming Key Stage 2 SATs.
The pupils attended weekend booster classes in maths, English and Science to help them be more prepared for the SATs which take place in May. The weekend classes were spread over a nine-week period. However, the pupils were not alone as their mums were also in school with them, doing their own learning! The ‘mums’ attended development sessions where they learned about cyber bullying, First Aid and Health and Safety.
The Deputy Lord Mayor, Coun Alun Griffiths, will present pupils and their mums with certificates for their attendance and efforts at these weekend sessions, on Wednesday 26 April, in the Banqueting Suite in City Hall.
The school worked in partnership with grass-roots organisation, NEESIE, who organised the booster classes and the ‘mothers’ empowered’ sessions. NEESIE provides supportive networks and help for single mothers.
Deputy Lord Mayor, Coun Alun Griffiths, said: “I am really looking forward to welcoming the pupils and their mums. It is really pleasing that so many pupils were keen to put in this extra effort in their own leisure time to prepare themselves in advance of the Key Stage 2 tests.”
