Cause YOU Can works with schools and academies to support attainment. We help you make the most of your Pupil Premium programmes and achieve an “outstanding” OFSTED rating.

Our team works closely with schools to:

- Tar­get SEALs (Social and Emo­tion­al Aspects of Learn­ing) to sup­port well-being and pre­vent the devel­op­ment of emo­tion­al or behav­iour­al issues 

- Raise attain­ment of pupils who under­achieve, because they lack con­fi­dence, are affect­ed by their socio-eco­nom­ic back­ground, have com­plex needs, prob­lems with home life, are at risk of exclu­sion

- Assist class­room man­age­ment by engag­ing pupils who strug­gle to adapt to a struc­tured envi­ron­ment

- Sup­port inte­gra­tion of learn­ers with Eng­lish as a sec­ond lan­guage

- Pro­mote uni­ver­sal val­ues via a sec­u­lar frame­work, suit­able to all faiths

- Sup­port the tran­si­tion from Pri­ma­ry to Sec­ondary, by nur­tur­ing lead­er­ship

- Increase com­mu­ni­ty cohe­sion and fos­ter rela­tion­ships between schools and the wider com­mu­ni­ty, through par­ents and edu­ca­tors’ involve­ment with the project

Pic for TestimonialsWe were impressed with the pro­fes­sion­al­ism of ‘Cause YOU Can’s staff. They were friend­ly and cour­te­ous at all times. They built up a good rap­port with the chil­dren and they man­aged their behav­iour con­sis­tent­ly, and well.”      Head­teacher, St Bernadette Junior School, Clapham South

We feel that the input has had a long-last­ing pos­i­tive emo­tional effect on the pupils involved.” Teacher, Granton Pri­mary School, Streatham

How we work with schools

We ask schools to iden­ti­fy chil­dren they think would most ben­e­fit (12 per work­shop). Any child aged 6 to 11 is eli­gi­ble if they live in a deprived area or are deemed ‘at risk’. We seek par­ents’ con­sent and back­ground infor­ma­tion from par­ents and schools, to ensure that we can respond to the chil­dren’s indi­vid­ual needs and mon­i­tor progress.

Host­ing schools need to pro­vide a room for the work­shops and prac­ti­cal sup­port with organ­is­ing the per­for­mances, such as send­ing invi­ta­tions to par­ents and guardians.

We strong­ly believe that chil­dren and young peo­ple have the right to stay safe from abuse and neglect. Our Safe­guard­ing pol­i­cy sets out clear and robust guid­ing prin­ci­ples and pro­ce­dures to reflect this com­mit­ment. This includes manda­to­ry and up-to-date safe­guard­ing train­ing for all our staff and vol­un­teers. All our facil­i­ta­tors are accord­ing­ly trained and hold an enhanced DBS cer­tifi­cate.

Low cost, high value

Cause YOU Can builds sus­tain­able part­ner­ships with schools, libraries and cin­e­mas. We do not wish to exclude any­one because of lack of fund­ing. We use match fund­ing, so that part­ner­ing schools only have to pay a min­i­mal fee towards the project deliv­ery. We can help you iden­ti­fy sources of fund­ing and/or you can sup­port our fundrais­ing.

If you are host­ing the work­shops for one term, you will def­i­nite­ly notice some ben­e­fits. Addi­tion­al ben­e­fits are gained by chil­dren and schools through long-term involve­ment.
