Transform Enrichment Diploma (TED) 2019-20

 

Dear Parent/Carer,

Transform Trust believes its children are entitled to broad horizons, opportunity and high aspirations for themselves. Children in our schools deserve to be inspired and challenged, enabling them to develop their unique potential to the full.

Academic achievement is important to Transform but preparing children for life requires more than this. To this end, all schools deliver the Transform Enrichment Diploma programme, usually referred to as TED.

TED is intended to:
 Enrich cultural capital
 Empower children as agents of change through the Transform values
 Engage children in citizenship
 Develop children’s holistic identity and personal view
 Develop leadership and independence

It’s also intended to be fun and provide memorable childhood experiences.

Each child will tackle TED through a programme tailored to their year group. This will be scaffolded by Transform values. TED’s aim is to inspire children to develop skills, talents and character through a wide range of activities, using their curiosity and creativity to find ways of achieving their potential. Having the confidence and drive to live out the Transform values.

This enrichment opportunity will take Transform children beyond the usual to deliver a range of memorable experiences to surprise and delight. It will link to Transform’s curriculum, bringing breadth to educational experience and allowing for a more personalised approach.

The Transform Trust community and/or individual schools will celebrate the children’s achievement at the end of each stage. Each school has its own way of tracking what the children have achieved and to celebrate and display this.

The TED programme for 2019-20 is overleaf. Your child’s school will be planning to deliver each element for their year group. Although these are subject to revision, dependent on individual school’s circumstances, you should be able to expect a broadly comparable programme. Some schools already have their own enrichment programmes and these may run alongside TED.

We hope your child will enjoy and benefit from this throughout their time in Primary school.

If you have any questions regarding the TED, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.

Kind regards

Headteacher
