The Feoffmentor Programme is a scheme to encourage local professionals, hobbyists and alumni to come into the school to give a presentation or workshop on their specialist topic.
So far we have had a tremendous response from some of the parents who have shared with their children's class and other classes their expertise & hobbies!
Its a fantastic way for the children to get curious about the wider world, and to build a connection between the school and the community of parents and local groups.
A Feoffmentor could be:
- Alumni senior school or college students giving a talk to the Year 5/6s about what to expect in higher education
- Artists holding workshops or demonstrations.
- Local businesses, groups or charities talking about what they do and/or providing workshops for the students to take part in.
- Local professionals giving demonstrations and showing the students what they do for a living.
