We are super excited to welcome Mrs Ranford as our new D of E manager. Mrs Ranford is one of our wonderful LSAs and works in the learning express department. Mrs Ranford brings with her a lifetimes experience of camping and outdoor pursuits as well as incredible organisation and time management skills.

Of course, 2020-21 has been an unusual time for the D of E programme and Mrs Ranford will be exploring ways to refresh the award with Year 9 and above from September 2021. Mrs Ranford will this term, however, be supporting those learners in Year 10 to complete their Bronze Award that they began back in September 2019.

If you feel that you could support the D of E award scheme at school through opportunities for the young people to volunteer, develop physical abilities and improve other skills then please do get in touch.
