Funding from the Walcot Foundation to roll out Mouse Club in Lambeth
Walcot Foundation, an independent charity working within Lambeth, have funded us to roll out Mouse Club transition and home learning project to 10 schools in Lambeth.
Mouse Club involves getting children ready to start school. Schools or settings run workshops in June or July and give parents input and fun resources, tip sheets and sticker charts to help prepare their children for school in September.
The home learning project helps parents to do fun activities at home that support their children’s learning and develop the confidence of staff to work more closely with parents.
The project was trialled as part of a randomised control trial and was found to be effective by the Sutton Trust and the Department of Education at Oxford University, according to a report published on the Sutton Trust website.
