During the weeks of 26th July and 2nd August 2021 we welcomed over 120 students into school to participate in our summer school.
Working in partnership with The Protective Services Academy, the focus of the two weeks was to familiarise pupils with the school environment, build friendships with fellow pupils, forge relationships with new teachers and begin to engage with the school’s systems and structures that are underpinned by teamwork, respect, ambition, community and knowledge.
Students were given opportunities to develop literacy and STEM skills whilst also enjoying trips out to places such as Bidston Hill, Tam O’Shanter’s Urban Farm and both Liverpool and Merseyside Maritime Museums.
The staff involved worked extremely hard to ensure that all students were engaged but more importantly felt confident about their start to the new academic year.
Feedback received from parents included:
“Thank you for this week, my son has enjoyed every day”
“I just wanted to thank you all for everything this week. ** has had a great time and enjoyed all of the activities and I think it’s been really good for him to be thrown in with new people and he’s got on with it and come out smiling every day! He can’t wait for September!”
“Thanks for giving him the opportunity to attend though, he’s enjoyed the week - and it’s got him up and out doing things, so I’ve enjoyed it too! 😊”.
Mr Ashley Power, Director of The Protective Services Academy says,
“Through our partnership with The Mosslands were able to jointly produce an excellent two-week summer school that allowed the future Mosslands Year 7 group a wonderful insight into high school. Although there was an academic focus throughout, PSA and The Mosslands School agreed that due to the nature of education and society the past 18 months we wanted to make sure that fun, socialising and making friends before starting high school was at the heart of the summer school”
We hope that we can offer a similar event next year so that we can support more students of the school and continue to build positive relationships with both them and their families.
