In today's ever-evolving educational landscape, schools face numerous challenges in ensuring that students not only excel academically but also develop crucial life skills. One way to address these challenges is the implementation of our Behaviour and Resilience Mentoring provision. In this case study, we'll explore how Campion School and Language College utilises our BRM provision to effectively support their students.
Campion School and Language College is a school of nearly 1300 students based just outside of Northampton. They have a strong mission of ‘Creating Brilliant Futures’ which encompasses their ACE values of Achievement, Character, Excellence, ensuring every student is empowered to develop the skills, knowledge, attributes and empathy they will need for their ambitious and fulfilling futures.
The school partnered with TFTF in April 2022, initially starting with 1 day of provision focussed on supporting students with low aspirations. In September 2023 the provision was increased to 2 days per week, with 1 day structured around preventative work and the second day focussed on a smaller cohort of students who were at risk of exclusion. Two different mentors were allocated to the provision, providing a greater breadth of experience and skills as well as personality type.
The TFTF Experience
Both mentors are well integrated into the school, enabling valuable wide-reaching feedback to be shared. Regular communication with both the lead contact for the provision and Heads of Years means the mentors feel part of an integrated team and leads to the further success of the students accessing the provision.
Steve King, Assistant Headteacher and lead contact of the provision, identified the professional approach of our staff and our flexibility and efficiency as some of the biggest benefits of their partnership with TFTF, along with being able to put an intervention in place with minimal worry or cost and providing students with the support of someone young and external. With our staff being highly supported through our line management structures and stringent quality assurance processes, overall the TFTF Behaviour and Resilience Mentoring Provision has added value to Campion School.
The success of the Behaviour and Resilience Mentoring provision at Campion School highlights the potential impact of a well-implemented provision and demonstrates that proactive prevention and targeted intervention can lead to substantial improvements in student behaviour and overall school culture.
