Impact School Improvement Ltd is a specialist education consultancy that believes in making an impact on pupil outcomes. We provide support for senior leaders, teachers and support staff to raise standards in Literacy and Numeracy and address the demands of the new Wales curriculum as outlined in the Donaldson Review. We believe in depth of learning and use sketch-noting to support pupils to master skills across the curriculum.
Impact helps schools to identify areas of the new curriculum that they need to develop further, such as creating learners who are, ‘Enterprising, creative contributors’. Enterprise Troopers is the perfect opportunity for schools to showcase the work they have been doing to address the new curriculum and prepare learners for the demands of adult life in the 21st Century.
