David Williams, Deputy Head Teacher, Parkfield Community School, Birmingham

“We are in our third year of our very successful partnership with City Year UK and we have been delighted with the unwavering enthusiasm, commitment and impact that they have demonstrated at our school in many different contexts.

“City Year have enabled us to more closely tailor playtime and dinnertime activities to the needs of our children, helping to create an even happier and more harmonious atmosphere during these times at our school. In the classroom, they have worked almost seamlessly with their class teachers to help to raise the self-esteem of small groups of children and to improve attainment and progress. They have also led a variety of extra-curricular activities, creating a wider breadth of opportunities for our children than we would have been able to provide alone.”
