Schools as a Hub for Community Regeneration (STV Hunter Schools Project)
This project ran between 2014 and 2015.
Children in Scotland worked with six pathfinder schools in some of Scotland's most deprived areas to support them in using their existing facilities, resources and space as community hubs with a view to improving pupil attainment and aiding local regeneration.
We teamed up with the STV Hunter Foundation to deliver strategic partnerships with the six schools and their respective local authorities: Fife, Glasgow, West Dunbartonshire and North Ayrshire.
The objectives of the project were to:
- Identify effective, practical and long-term funded approaches for schools to engage parents and the wider community and contribute to the aim of reducing the attainment gap
- Establish learning at local authority level that could be shared with relevant teams across the area and used to influence the work of the local Community Planning Partnership in effective delivery of the Single Outcome Agreement for the area
- Collate and disseminate the relevant learning at a national level, so it could be used to inform and influence national learning, policy and practice.
