Ufton Adventure: Our Impact
Our programmes are based on a model of repeated intervention; current psychological research tells us that experience builds brain architecture and that our brains can change long into adult life. Like learning any new skill, the more you do something the better you become at it.
How do we measure our impact?
1. Feedback from all visiting teachers.
2. Case studies from schools.
3. Reading University are conducting a longitudinal study following one group of secondary aged children from Y7 to Y11.
4. Track a sample of children in each group using the Boxall profile, which gives a detailed picture of a child’s development and behaviour over time.
5. Secondary school children complete the New Philanthropy Capital (NPC) Wellbeing measure.
6. Primary school children to complete our own simpler wellbeing and resilience questionnaire.
Feedback from visiting teachers…
- 100% agree that their young people feel capable of more than they had previously imagined
- 97% agree that their children have developed their ability to work collaboratively with others
- 95% agree their children have increased personal confidence
- 86% agree their children are more likely to persevere when they encounter difficulties in the future
- 84% agree their children have improved ability to set personal goals
What our Adventurers say they have learnt…
