Drama PPA cover

The objectives of this programme:

  • For children to learn why Drama is important, to become familiar with all basic drama techniques such as role-play and mime
  • To demonstrate good negotiation skills when working as an ensemble that children can use in all subjects across the curriculum
  • To improve public speaking skills which are inevitably an asset to every individual’s lifelong career
  • To show children that Drama is not only for the most extrovert children – there are opportunities to just be a “face” or a “voice” in the chorus as well as an abundance of roles backstage.
  • To support children in exploring the world around them using imaginary characters

Musical Theatre PPA cover

  • For children to develop their skills in the key areas of singing, dancing and acting

  • To improve children’s confidence by performing a different range of musical theatre productions, trying out new roles and responsibilities
  • For children to act through improvisation and understand the importance of body language
  • To improve voice projection through acting and singing

Children will learn drama skills and techniques that will encourage them to step outside of their comfort zone, to expand their knowledge and to build on their confidence. Our Drama lessons have a proven-track record of improving levels of English for children with English as an Additional Language.

Our Perform & Learn© lessons use cross-curricular topics as stimuli (such as the Victorians, the Vikings, Diwali as well as PHSE topics such as bullying, health and well-being, and living in the wider world) which enhances children’s learning experience of the topic they are currently learning about and helps them to explore their class-topic from a different angle.

Monday, July 06, 2020

2020 has seen unprecedented times that we, as a company, never thought we would find ourselves in. We would like to express our gratitude to our:

  • Amazing clients

Working in the public sector can be very challenging at times and we understand that for schools, it is difficult to appreciate the way that our business works. Thanks to the support of our schools and the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, we managed to waive over £300,000 of invoices to schools. This left us in a very difficult situation as we still have our HQ premises mortgage, bills to cover and suppliers that unfortunately have had to charge us regardless of the situation. We have lost approximately 10 schools for 2020-2021 due to COVID-19 and the budget cuts their schools have faced. We are very hopeful that these schools will return to us once they are open in September and have received funding support from the government.

  • Wonderful staff

Given one days notice that all schools in the UK would close, our staff had to frantically cancel over 90 PPA sessions daily, indefinitely. Throughout the peak of the crisis, we have had to work night and day to ensure the decisions we were making were going to have a minimal impact on our regular services once schools resumed. Our staff have taken the time to organise their work, to write new lesson plans for children and new schemes of work and we couldn’t be more grateful of their support. This truly shows their passion for the education sector and above all their love for children and learning!

  • Suppliers

To those suppliers who have been flexible with us during these unprecedented times, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Tsunami Computers Leicester, Lex AutoLease, WaterPlus and many more have allowed us to pause or reduce our monthly payments whilst we have received no income. This has made the difference between us surviving and not surviving the crisis. 

Going forwards, we will be rebuilding our business back up to where we were and support from schools in outsourcing their PPA to us to help us rebuild is greatly appreciated. We understand PPA time is a legal requirement for all teachers and the majority of the subjects that we cover are compulsory so if you are struggling to cover PPA time, would like to explore a new method of covering a compulsory subject such as MFL or ICT, please allow us to provide your school with a FREE trial and show you why you should choose us and support our small business.

We would like to send our well wishes to all small businesses both who have survived the crisis and who unfortunately have closed their doors. If you have managed to survive like us, please dig deep and find that energy to push forwards once more to rebuild your business rather than give up. The UK needs small businesses and even more so now with unemployment on the rise. It will be worth it, we promise!
