Improving Outcomes for Children and Young People with Free School Meals, English as an Additional Language and from Minority Ethnic backgrounds

Kick Start Enterprise services to academies, schools and EY settings 2017

Kick Start Enterprise (KSE) consultants offer a range of support to Early Years settings, Primary schools, Secondary schools and Academies to meet the needs of Black and Minority Ethnic pupils, including pupils with English as an Additional Language and to develop Equality and Inclusion provision.
We are experienced in providing support to providers with small numbers of BME and EAL learners as well as those with 50% or more.
KSE consultants work initially with the EMA (Ethnic Minority Achievement) or Inclusion Lead or member of SLT with responsibility for the achievement of the BME and EAL learner cohort.
Following a free one-hour initial consultation, service packages are offered which are intended to run across the academic year. Individual activities are also offered.
