Jamie’s Farm works with schools to support vulnerable young people who are at risk of social or academic exclusion. Students are referred for:
a lack of engagement in school manifesting in low attendance and attainment;
poor mental well-being and self-esteem issues;
challenges demonstrating positive behaviour, leading to negative relationships with adults and peers.
Underpinning these is an underlying improvement in the ‘soft skills’ that are so vital to the academic success of pupils, and their ability to achieve in later life. Our mental well-being measure results have demonstrated that we significantly improve pupils’ resilience, motivation and self-control, the non-cognitive skills that research is suggesting are even more important than numeracy and literacy in children’s life and employment prospects. It is no surprise then, that over 90% of our partner schools have rebooked visits with us.

“I cannot stress enough how beneficial this unique opportunity was. I attended the trip myself for the whole week and observed some quite remarkable transformations in students who otherwise present some quite challenging and complex behaviour, social and emotional difficulties. The skills that were developed have had a lasting impact here at school both in terms of academic progress but also in terms of behaviour improvement.”
