Kenmont Primary School
From the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, Kenmont Primary School has been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2013 to develop a set of eight Essential Skills in their students. Over the years, students across the whole school have been developing their Essential Skills through Lesson-Time Projects as well as Challenge Days and Trips to Employers.
IHS Markit

Positive Performance
The teams spent the first part of the challenge conducting some crucial research by interviewing volunteers about their roles, responsibilities and how they use Aiming High and Teamwork skills in their day-to-day jobs. They then went on an exciting tour which sparked their imagination for their project: to plan a new reward scheme for the employees of their host. They needed to aim high in their teams to make sure they could identify key goals and effective rewards. The volunteers were able to help them through this research stage with further interviews and examples from their personal experience. The day was rounded off by performance management meetings where the teams introduced staff to the new reward scheme and the volunteers identified the scheme they would like to see implemented.
The children have benefited a lot by being here today. It will help to shape their future aspirations.

I enjoyed talking to the volunteers and finding out more about what they do. It was interesting.

This is an amazing programme that I wish existed years ago. I think all schools should take part.
