Partnership working with Falinge Park High School, Rochdale - a message from their Headteacher


A powerful read from Janice Allen, Headteacher at Falinge Park High School about how lessons learned from lockdown inspired a new school transition project in Rochdale.

“In recent years, the school has worked with substance misuse charity Early Break on a project to improve the transition between primary and secondary. As part of the scheme, counsellors and practitioners from the charity work with vulnerable children during the summer holidays, offering a support for Year 6 pupils who may otherwise have struggled with the move into secondary education.

The scheme has been a big success, so wondered how the concept could work with i-college”, quotes Janice.

She fronts a powerful film clip starring her pupils on the subject of diversity and the Rochdale community. Take a look!
