6. Focussed on your priorities

We know that different schools are likely to have different priorities and our approach is designed to have the flexibility to recognise and respond to different priorities, through the key staff working with each school group.

We have identified three different focus areas, as follows, where we can impact on your learners in a positive and effective way:

  • Developing Social Awareness
  • Building confidence and other personal qualities
  • Team work and related skills

While you are at Robinwood you have the option to focus on one of the above themes. Although the main session objectives do not change, by letting us know your choice in advance, our staff can prepare for your visit and will focus their praise, reviews and discussion around these areas specifically for your group.

If there are any other areas that you would like us to focus on, please let us know.

"The children and staff absolutely loved it! They were beaming throughout the whole weekend. Educational Value is superb! The children developed and grew before our eyes. This was a group of children who find it challenging to work as a team at school and spend some of their time falling out and not communicating. Their development was like watching a flower unfurl! We are so proud of every one of them! Overnight Supervision - Amazing staff! Was really impressed by the communication between myself and the staff with regards to a diabetic boy who we brought! They were just as concerned by him as I was! Food - Superb! Good choice! The children all seemed to enjoy it! There were no complaints of being hungry! Carb count given prior to the visit to ensure that our diabetic child was catered for. Also thorough discussion with Course Leader at the beginning of the course regarding allergies. I would just like to say thank you to all the staff who looked after us during our stay! You definitely make it easy for teachers and it is so lovely to be able to sit back and watch the development of the children!"
