PEN has a proven track record of delivering innovative and effective projects


Trafford and Liverpool: 'When I Grow Up'.

OVO Foundation funded us to support the development of early literacy in Trafford and Liverpool schools through our Mouse Club project.

The OVO Foundation has written about the funding here.

Lambeth: Raising the Game

We worked with Lambeth Schools Partnership to support and develop universal provision and to support families from the Black Caribbean community to develop positive behaviours for learning and improve their child’s outcomes. You can see some of our work on our YouTube Channel.

Developing Partnerships with Parents

PEN was awarded a grant from the Suffolk Community Foundation to enable schools to develop their parental engagement using PEN's Mouse Club, Playclub, Family Detective Reading Project and Moving Up

London: Mouse Club & Home Learning

THe Walcot Foundation funded us to roll out our Mouse Club transition and home learning project to 10 schools in Lambeth. 

100% of practitioners who attended the initial training session reported an increase in their knowledge, skills and confidence in engaging parents who do not traditionally engage in their child's learning.
