Good Practice in Schools

Good practice in schools as a result of the CREDIT project
Exploring Skills in CREDIT

As part of the criteria to complete the Exploring Skills in CREDIT course, participants are asked to put in place effective plans for the future to address relevant areas covered by the CREDIT course.  The varied projects chosen are very dependent upon the starting point of the individual schools where the teachers are working.

Below is a brief outline of a number of projects and initiatives that have been inspired as a result of the Exploring Skills in CREDIT project:
• Hosting a mini Olympics event with a group of local primary schools
• Formation of a pupil voice group and school councils
• Pupil, staff and resource audits to establish starting point and identify areas of priority
• Development of a Good Relations Policy
• Development of lessons, activities and varied teaching strategies to address associated controversial and sensitive issues
• Hosting a multi-cultural event
• Development of a range of diversity and inclusion activities in the school such as visits to local industries focusing on fair employment practices
• Enhanced links with other schools particularly for drama, music and art activities and relevant outside agencies
• Development of a website for pupils to contribute work and engage with others in local schools
• Further development of connections with the wider community such as visitors from a range of ethnic and diverse communities to share traditions and experiences

Extending Skills in CREDIT

As part of the criteria to complete the Extending Skills in CREDIT course, participants are asked to implement a project in school that puts into practice some of the ideas developed from the course and enables the teacher to take the next step forward in this area.  The projects adopted have been varied and are very dependent upon the starting point of the individual schools where the teachers are working.

Below is a brief outline of a number of projects and initiatives that have been inspired as a result of the Extending Skills in CREDIT project:
• Joint events with other schools such as trips, sporting events, concerts and communal gardens
• Development of links with organisations in the local community such as local nursing homes
• Improvements in CRED provision for students
• Building collaborative links and partnerships with local schools – to include Principals and parents
• Development of cross community collaborative projects
• Creation of a welcome book  for new children
• Access funding  for collaborative projects
