The Pegasus Project
The Pegasus Project is a 10 month, 42 week programme that supports local Year 6 children in their transition from small, rural Primary schools to larger, suburban Secondary schools.
The project is based around the Pegasus Award, a local scheme a little like the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, and the thrust of the work is to develop confidence and resilience in the group, both as individuals and as a collective. Unusually, Pegasus keeps going for two days in the summer holidays, bridging the gap between the very different school years either side of the break. The project ends at the end of September, with participants hopefully having made a strong and relatively stress free move into the “big school”, and into the rest of GCCA’s youth provision.
The face to face group work takes place on a Friday after school, from 3.15 to 5.15, with an extra hour available to staff for planning and paperwork. There are some additional activities scheduled during the longer summer break, for approximately 10 hours in total, for which extra payment is made, if necessary.
The Assistant Worker will assist with the delivery of the agreed Pegasus programme in sessions at The Old Chapel, Godolphin School Playing Fields and/or other local venues.
