The Tigers programme was created this year within Turves Green as an intervention to support pupils who may struggle around school with behaviour or any social or emotional needs. The support put into place involves working alongside pupils in order to break down barriers to learning and to help pupils achieve their full potential. This is through 1 to 1 mentoring sessions as well as working with small groups of pupils to deliver an alternative programme of support through the TIGERS curriculum.
The pupils involved within the Tigers Programme have recently engaged in different forms of Physical activity during their sessions. The sessions have consisted of working together in the Gym to help create bonds between the boys’ and to understand the importance of being part of a team. There have also been some fitness sessions including boxing in aim to increase self-discipline both inside and outside of school.
The programme also ventures into different interventions away from Physical Activity. More recently the pupils on the Tigers Programme have been given a project by the ‘Eco-Club’ which will see the boys helping out in the garden area of the school so the Eco-Club can begin their venture.
Finally, the boys’ will be enjoying cooking sessions once a week as part of their alternative curriculum which will see them working together to create dishes to build on their teamwork skills which is vital within and outside of school!
