The Scout Association

The Trust is proud to promote its links with the Scouts Association which offers young people a wealth of activities and opportunities.

In 2016, the Times Education Supplement (TES) wrote an article which suggested that children who joined Scouts and Guides – and benefited from outdoors experiences and independent learning as a result – had better mental health in adulthood.  The below article continues in that theme, stating that where scouting is embedded in school curriculum pupils reap longer term benefits.

The Consortium Multi Academy Trust is currently working with local Scouting groups to develop programmes across our Trust schools to support pupils engagement in Scouts.  We have succesfully linked Yoxford & Peasenhall Primary School with 1st Fressingfield Scout Group (visit the Group website here):

who visit the school to offer pupils an opportunity to develop skills for life and aspirations through a variety of activities. Further information regarding this scheme can be found on the document below.
