Endeavour Education Centre Half Term Attendance
20 Feb 2017
As we reach the end of another half term at the Endeavour Education Centre (EEC) in Sheffield, we wanted to share some of the highlights with you and update you on our attendance figures for the period.
The EEC is an alternative provision for children missing from education. We currently have over 40 learners on role who come to us for a variety of reasons, but often because they are struggling in a mainstream setting, are new to the country or are looked after children or young carers.
Attendance at the EEC improved virtually every week this half term, finishing on 82% in the final week, with 27 learners achieving 100%. Average attendance over the period was also up on last half term at 71%.
EEC Curriculum Manager Hannah Shaw says: “We are extremely proud of our learners’ attendance figures from last half term. A lot of our learners have many barriers to accessing education so to see so many of them achieve 100% attendance week after week is fantastic. Well done everybody!”
Highlights over the period included a variety of outdoor activities such as climbing, weaselling, escape & evade and wormhole; employability sessions and mock interviews with our local charity partners Sainsbury’s The Moor; financial literacy classes in partnership with Blue Wealth Capital; a rail trip to Chesterfield courtesy of Northern; an insight visit to Davy Markham’s factory and learning to change tyres with Hometyre Sheffield.
