The RISE Project is our biggest venture so far. Over a period of twelve months, nine Charnwood Schools are taking part in the Resilience, Independence and Self-Esteem Project, aimed at pupils in Years 3 to 5. In total over 120 pupils will be involved in outdoor activities, craft-work, orienteering and team-work to develop the confidence of selected children from the nine schools. The primary schools involved are: Holywell; Loughborough Cof E; Mountfields; Hathern; Outwoods Edge; Rendell; Cobden; Stonebow and Robert Bakewell. The interim evaluation suggests that this is proving to be a most effective collaboration, with good outcomes for the children involved.
