Primary Schools Work

At The Shed, we are committed to coming alongside Primary 7 students and supporting them through their transition into Secondary School. Our Shed Youth Team works alongside local teachers to provide in class sessions every fortnight. Providing a safe and welcoming space for the students to grow in confidence, explore new life skills and bring any concerns they may have. Our mentoring and support programs allow the students to develop character, cope with the challenges of adolescence, and strive for a brighter future.

"The work that we do with the P7’s through fortnightly sessions and mentoring is so important to help the pupils grow in self-confidence and develop life skills. With carefully curated sessions that focus on Bullying, Peer Pressure, Health and Wellbeing and many other topics, we are ensuring that the P7’s have the necessary skills to handle the transition from Primary to Secondary, but also beyond their school careers. I look forward to continuing to work with each year's new P7's and the continuation of developing the work that we do with the schools and pupils in the local community."

One part of my role that I really enjoy is working with Primary 7 students each week. We visit local schools to deliver in-class sessions, created alongside teachers to provide transition material as the P7 students prepare to move from primary to secondary school. Each term, we deliver sessions on important topics such as Peer Pressure, Bullying, Social Media Safety and many more! I love to see the growth of confidence in each pupil through the year and see friendships created and equipping of many skills that they will carry with them as they progress into their Secondary years.
