We are extremely pleased to inform you that Abu Hanifah Foundation is officially a learning provider for The Children’s University through its Scouts activities.
Children’s University is a charity that works in partnership with schools to develop a love of learning in children. They do this by encouraging and celebrating
participation in extra-curricular activities in and outside of school. The impact of these activities is proven to be positive which is why we’re committed to creating a level playing field of opportunity and opening up access to children of all backgrounds.
By the time a child turns 18, they will have spent just 9% of their waking life in a classroom. Children’s University is about making the most of the remaining 91%.
Research shows that participation in extra-curricular activities can positively impact on attainment, increase a pupil’s positive identification with school, and build self-confidence and resilience. Research also shows that children that do not have access to these opportunities fall behind, lack confidence, and fail to develop career aspirations. The resulting attainment gap is so significant that 25% of children from the most disadvantaged backgrounds achieve below expected attainment levels.
If your child attends Abu Hanifah Foundation and is also a student at Sacred Heart, St Aidans, St Silas, St Michael with St John or Wensley Fold Primary School, and are members of the Children’s University, then once a month, they can deposit their passports at the AHF School office for stamping.
