Class People to give back to education
Class People is teaming up with local schools to offer sponsorship support with its ‘Class People Foundation’.
The agency, which supplies teachers and early years’ practitioners to schools and settings across the South, has a commitment to give back to education. As part of this commitment, CEO Lynis Bassett gave the first cheque for £500 to Rowanfield Junior School in a special celebration assembly in Cheltenham.
The funding will support Rowanfield pupils with a new behaviour reward system, allowing those who go the extra mile to access special activities via a ‘Golden Ticket’. Additional rewards will then be given to the top pupil in each year group to allow them to celebrate with their families.
Claire Savory, co-head teacher of Rowanfield Junior School commented, “We trialled the ‘Golden Ticket’ in the Autumn term and found it to be extremely well received. With limited access to funding for ‘extras’ in the school we were delighted to hear about the Class People Foundation. We have a great working relationship with Class People and this is just another example of them leading the industry by going the extra mile to support their schools.”
Lynis Bassett, CEO of Class People, said, “Coming from a teaching background I have always been keen to support education in any way that I can. The Class People Foundation was set up to provide funding to our schools for items or events that may not be possible without our help. The idea is to re-invest in the sector and it’s our way of giving something back to communities and schools in which we work. We are delighted to be partnering with Rowanfield on this as we already have a close working relationship.”
