Over the next 3 years, our schools are going to be tak­ing part in a very excit­ing Eras­mus+ project called LTT, funded by the British Schools Coun­cil, with part­ner schools in Wales and Spain.

LTT project has 3 major aims:

  1. To help pupils gain the nec­es­sary skills to help them make changes within their school and their com­mu­ni­ties.
  2. To improve com­mu­nity engage­ment and develop effec­tive links between pupils, the school and mem­bers of the com­mu­nity.
  3. To sup­port pupils, fam­i­lies and mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to bring about pos­i­tive changes within their own communities.

In order to com­plete the project, the schools will be doing the following:

Year 1 (2015 to 2016)  Work­ing with a group of Year 5 pupils on iden­ti­fy­ing an aspect of the school that they would like to change /?improve. The school will show the chil­dren how they can use a model, known as the ?Dou­ble Dia­mond» model, to lead them through the process of mak­ing change.

Year 2 (2016 to 2017)  The group of chil­dren that took part in the 1st year of the project will look to engage mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to do the same as Year 1 BUT instead of improv­ing some­thing within the school, will look to improve some­thing within the local community.

Year 3 (2017 to 2018)  The group of pupils (who will now be in Year 7), will work with the Com­pre­hen­sive School staff to look at mak­ing changes within their new school and will also train the Year 5 pupils on how to use the ?Dou­ble Dia­mond» model to start the process all over again.

As part of the project, the schools have received fund­ing to also provide:

  • school lead­ers with the oppor­tu­nity of vis­it­ing the part­ner­ship schools in Spain and Greece to look at how they are car­ry­ing out the project in their countries;
  • class teach­ers to visit one of the schools in Spain and Greece to observe teach­ing and learn­ing and bring back some new ideas that will have a pos­i­tive impact on what we do within our school;
  • a small group of pupils to spend a week in one of the schools in Spain and also one of the schools in Greece.

The part­ner Schools are: Mal­pas Pri­mary School, New­port, St Jame­sPri­mary School from Wales, and two Com­pre­hen­sive Schools Cardiff High school and Cyfar­thfa High School, Merthyr Tydfil.

Were very excited to see what our chil­dren will learn from tak­ing part in the project but also to see what changes they will make to our school. We?re also look­ing for­ward to see­ing the work our chil­dren do with mem­bers of the local com­mu­nity and the impact this has on improv­ing things for everyone.

We will con­tinue to keep every­one informed about the work that is going on in this project.
