Yoxford And Peasenhall – Stretcher Making

We are pleased to say that we have been nominated in the Suffolk County Council Raising the Bar awards - for our partnership working in delivering scouting at Yoxford and Peasenhall School-in recognition for the innovative work that is being delivered.

 

In 2016, the Times Educational Supplement (TES) wrote an article which suggested that children who joined Scouts and Guides - and benefitted from outdoors experiences and independent learning as a result - had better mental health in adulthood.  The below article continues in that theme, stating that where scouting is embedded in school curriculum pupils reap longer term benefits.
