EVERY LEARNER MATTERS NEW College is committed to the Every Learner Matters agenda.
What is Every Learner Matters (ELM)?
The five outcomes are universal ambitions for every child and young person, whatever their background or circumstances. Improving outcomes for all children and young people underpins all of the development and work within Children's Trusts.
The outcomes are mutually reinforcing. For example, children and young people learn and thrive when they are healthy, safe and engaged; and the evidence shows clearly that educational achievement is the most effective route out of poverty.
Improving outcomes also involves narrowing the gap between disadvantaged children and their peers. The Government is focusing particularly on improving outcomes for looked-after children and children with special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities, and on reducing the incidence of teenage pregnancy and the number of young people not in education, employment or training.
The College is committed to implementing the policy and ensuring that all students at NEW College have the opportunity to develop personally with regard to the five ELM elements (listed below) as well as achieving academic success.
Making a positive Contribution
Enjoying and Achieving
Achieve Economic Well-being
How is it implemented?
Throughout a student’s time in college all five elements are integrated into Schemes of Work, Lesson Plans and a variety of activities are organised for students who are encouraged to participate as fully as possible for their own personal development.
Some recent events have included:
Karate lessons, fundraising, walks, drama sketches
staff v student 5-a-side football/netball, Ready Steady Cook competition, photography competition, talks by the local Police, information fairs and themed weeks such as anti- bullying, RESPECT and Children in Need.
