HEART Staff asked 3 years ago

School: Crofton Academy

Activity: Flood a School

Date of request: 21/01/2016

Requested Delivery date: 25/02/2016 – 8:30 – 15:05


Hi last year Ian Brown organised a bespoke ‘flood a school’ where we had 7 students from partners in to work with our yr 9 year group (rather than the whole school). They were attached to a form group and stayed with them throughout the day as they had 4 workshops with the aim of making informed option choices. Would it be possible to do something similar this year?

Hi, I will try and book 3 ambassadors now. I know it’s a busy week with other events for us, but should be possible. Thanks, Liam (UoH)

Hi Anna, unfortunately all our senior student ambassadors are either unavailable or already working 15 hours (the maximum they can get paid to do under our system) that week. We have our Applicant Visit Days around then so I’m afraid we won’t be able to support the Crofton event. Apologies, Liam

Hi Liam, no worries and thanks for letting me know. Best wishes, Anna

Hi all,
Leeds Beckett will be able to send ambassadors. How many would we want? I will put the call out for six (this will mean we’ll probably get five), but can get more if needed?
Let me know.

Can you ask the school if the students will get lunch provided? Thanks! Will

HEART Staff replied 3 years ago

Hi Will, this is great – many thanks indeed. Leeds Uni are also putting the call out for this one, but I am not sure yet how many ambassadors they can provide (possibly 3, but this is unconfirmed). I will keep you posted, and will also check with the school as regards to lunch.
