Wonderful Things provides innovative extra-curricular activities to the children in the North West of England, delivered out of school hours, but within the safe environment of local primary schools. Project leaders provide a particularly wide spectrum of themes to the activities so that children are inspired and motivated to engage in challenging activities that they would not usually have access to.
Activities are varied and range from the arts (eg: Pirate Dance Day, Theatre Day, being a DJ) to science and technology (eg: Lego Day, Forensic Science Day, National Science Week) to the outdoors (eg: Forest Day, Crazy Sports Day) the practical (Baking Day, Journalism Workshops) and the unusual (Parliamentary Day, Didgeridoo Day!) These opportunities inspire the children and feed into their social and academic attainment, and the impact of this has been commented on by both parents, educators and by Ofsted!
BUT....is it safe?
...a little reassurance
All staff running activities for Wonderful Things have to provide us with evidence of their enhanced DBS, complete a Declaration of Disqualification and provide details of their public liability insurance.
Additional staff working with us include staff provided by the schools themselves, who also provide us with evidence of their DBS and Declaration of Disqualification. We require that they are up to date with first aid qualifications and safeguarding training.
Wonderful Things project managers, Julia and Kate, have enhanced DBS checks carried out, completed Declarations of Disqualification, have first aid and are designated Safeguarding Leads.
Julia is a primary school teacher and Kate worked as an Extended Schools Manager.
Wonderful Things Ltd has its own public liability insurance.
