Introduction to REAch2 11b411 at Dorothy Barley Junior Academy

“Dare to be different. Be a pioneer. Be a leader. Be the kind of person who in the face of adversity will continue to embrace life and walk fearlessly toward the challenge.” – Oprah Winfrey.

Life is an adventure.

As part of REAch2 Academy Trust we are a school committed to the 11b411 initiative. REAch2 are ambitious for our children to have broad horizons in life and high aspirations for themselves. We want our children to be inspired and challenged so that each one can develop their unique potential to the full.

To this end, we have developed the 11 before 11 set of promises, to empower our children to take the driving seat in their own lives. 11 before 11 is designed to take our children beyond the usual school experiences to deliver a range of memorable events that surprise and delight the child; both realising and releasing their potential in a wide range of contexts. 11 before 11 ensures that the touchstone of enjoyment is central to our children’s learning as they progress through our family of schools.

11 before 11 will take our children beyond the usual, to open opportunities in life and inspire them to move forward in their own life’s adventure.

Our School Adventure Ambassador (SAA) brings the promises to life at our school, through planning the adventures into the school’s curriculum; seeking sponsorship; funding; resources and links within and beyond the community. Our Adventure Ambassador also has access to Trust brokered partnerships such as the Scouts Association, Country Trust, Prince William Award, and Sport for Schools.
