Physical Literacy

The idea

We want to work with an identified group of students who are in need of a specific intervention in their education at Fitzalan High School.

Students will take part in a ‘cultural connections’ project – the aim being that by experiencing a series of active, cultural workshops or opportunities the students can develop wellbeing / engagement / attendance / literacy / empowerment to name but a few key points. The project will be student-led.

Progress

In collaboration with Student Volunteering Cardiff, the Physical Literacy team trained 11 Cardiff University students in the spring term of 2015 to engage young people in physical activity.

Next steps

The Physical Literacy Team and Student Volunteering Cardiff hope to start working with Community Gateway in the new academic year to support Fitzalan pupils.
