Creative Writing Through the Arts 23 May 2016
ROHB will expand an existing and successful Creative Writing through the Arts (CWtA) programme to cover a three year period, reaching 1350 children, 45 teachers and 45 school leaders in 45 schools, via collaborations with 18 arts practitioners in five art forms. 15 teachers will join the programme each September for an intensive year of support. Deeper formative and summative evaluation will allow ongoing refinement of the work and potentially deliver useful longitudinal evidence, as the progress in writing of a targeted group of children from each cohort will be tracked throughout the three years.
The project will work with sixteen schools to develop skills and confidence in teachers to equip them to lead singing in their schools with children, transforming the learning environment, bringing holistic health and social skills and impacting on the whole curriculum. Once the skills have been embedded the project will provide a range of opportunities to further develop awareness and experience of different styles of delivery and genres by working with a broad range of practitioners. The work will be punctuated with and culminate in collaborative performances music venues in the area.
School Without Walls is an enquiry based model of experiential and creative learning that transforms both the curriculum and the learning culture in schools. Transposing 'school' to an arts environment, invites teachers and children to interrogate and reshape teaching and learning in and through the arts. Artists and mentors from 5x5x5=creativity, egg theatre, Mentoring Plus and Bath Festivals will learn alongside teachers and children to pioneer approaches to embedding learning in and through the arts in the primary curriculum. We will expand the innovative methodologies of SWW to build a model together with 10 schools that could be replicated nationally.
This programme uses rehearsal room approaches and theatre making to teach Shakespeare in the primary school, and examines how this process can develop teachers' skill, confidence and ambition, and in turn impact on children's language and literacy. We will use reflective practice and action research to encourage teachers to consider how to apply their new-found approaches across their school's curriculum. The research will focus on identifying the approaches and processes that make teachers' professional development in these areas most effective, and how an action research informed approach can effectively support this.
Funding for senior staff salaries to develop YMCA Crewe's Life Academy programme and prepare for replication. 18 Jul 2016
YMCA Crewe is a 55-bed foyer (a form of supported housing for young people at risk of homelessness) which enables 150 young people annually to work towards improved employability, health and wellbeing and independent living through a comprehensive “Life Academy” model. Our grant will enable it to develop systems and procedures to prepare to replicate the model more widely. This follows a successful pilot working with a large London YMCA. The organisation was described as a "beacon" regionally in its approach to working with and involving young people, and the range of activities and courses it offers.

Right to Remain will pilot building local hubs in Greater Manchester and Liverpool that will develop a diverse and vibrant network of campaigns focused on ending immigration detention and pushing for community based alternatives. These campaigns will be migrant led, inter-linked and decentralised - each local hub will maintain its own identity, membership and ownership with Right to Remain acting as an anchor organisation providing resources and support.
Co-created by artists and teachers, the 2-year project will work with one year 6 class bridging the crucial period as they transition into year 7. A photographer and writer will explore narrative choices with the pupils and encourage them to transform their photographic artistry into creative written pieces. The work will take place in a deprived socio-economic area north of Newcastle.

Integration Parent Champions Pilot 11 Jul 2016

Partnering with The Parent House, a community based organisation in Islington, FCT will recruit and train a minimum of 10 Integration Champions who will provide peer-to-peer information, advice and support to 400 migrant and refugee families. An external evaluation will be commissioned to capture learning on the integration pathways of each of the parents involved over an 18 month period.
