Creative Cafe

Last week we attended a Creative Café held at Saxon Mount School. The idea behind the café is to get school-age children thinking about employment & to give them a small taste of what having a job is like. The focus was on the pupil’s strengths & skills. They were asked to answer questions like “what’s the point of this task?” & “what skills do I need to do this job?”. It was great to see all the children getting involved & starting to think about the choices they have when they leave school. It wasn’t all work, there were crafts & cakes too!!
