Students at Joseph Leckie Academy had the opportunity to participate in Enterprise programmes in conjunction with The Albion Foundation. All sessions took place at the Academy every Tuesday and were delivered by enterprise coordinators from the West Bromwich Albion Foundation. Students in Year 7 and 8 took part in the 'Premier League Enterprise' which was a programme that uses a football club's business model to inspire young people to engage more positively in education and achieve to their full potential. Topics covered included: ● The Fan Experience ● Attracting Customers ● Money Matters ● Managing the Business ● What we will sell? ● Aiming for Success Students in Year 9 and 10 took part in the 'Premier League Pilot Enterprise' which was a differentiated intervention programme to inspire young people to engage more positively in education and develop life skills to raise awareness of the world of work. Topics covered included: ● Goal setting / Aspirations ● Employability ● Aiming for Success Students who participated in the programme also had the opportunity to complete their final sessions at the WBA stadium. Students completed two educational sessions and also had the opportunity to take part in multi-sport activities at the WBA Community Sports Hall. Students were accompanied to the visit by Miss Ravat and Mr Ahmed. All students who took part were a credit to the Academy and thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the programme and visiting the stadium. Analysing the academy data, we have also noticed an overall improvement in both pupil progress and behaviour for the majority of students who participated in the programme.
Good Luck to all our of students collecting their results today! We'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate all students, their parents and all of the staff at Joseph Leckie Academy on their hard work and wish all students the very best for the future, whether they are planning on continuing their education, or entering employment for the first time.
Students at Joseph Leckie Academy had the opportunity to participate in a well-being programme called 'Up Front'. This was a differentiated intervention programme with the aim to improve resilience whilst increasing the positive well-being of young individuals. Sessions took place at the Academy every Friday and were delivered by Positive Well-being Workers from the West Bromwich Albion Foundation. Topics covered included: Stress and Anxiety Friendship and Communication Sleep Hygiene Gratitude, joy and happiness Mindfulness and Relaxation. Self-esteem and self-confidence Students who participated in the programme also had the opportunity to take part in activities at 'The Albion Foundation' before going to watch West Bromwich Albion vs Nottingham Forest match. Students were accompanied to the match by Miss Ravat and Mr Penksik and the students were a credit to the Academy. All students who took part thoroughly enjoyed the experience and for some it was the first time they watched a live match. Analysing the academy data, we have also noticed an overall improvement in both pupil progress and behaviour for the majority of students who participated in the programme. Following the success of the 'Up Front' programme, we have decided to continue the initiative at the Academy and started a similar in-house well-being programme. This is currently being carried out by Dr Gardiner and we will be continuing this next academic year with Year 7 students.
