About Fusion

The aim of Fusion is to engage vulnerable young people during their transition from childhood to adolescence.
We understand that the transition from childhood to adolescence is an exciting, challenging and sometimes scary process for young people. The Fusion programme has been designed to support vulnerable young role during this transition in school, after school and within their own local community.
Bella and Jack will be the recognisable face of the Fusion programme that will operate across the school and community settings to give young people a consistent brand to associate with and to access support from. We want to encourage and support young individuals to develop social and emotional capabilities which ill enhance their cognitive development within school.

Berkshire Youth Fusion Sessions at The Pines School 2017  - 'The Fusion youth work team have formed a colourful and integral part of The Pines PSHE Year Six curriculum, over the autumn term. Pupils embraced energetically, to question, learn and discover more about themselves as well as their peers: learning how to build skills of communication, resilience, creative thinking, community consideration, teamwork and leadership. 

Demonstrated and delivered by the Fusion Team, the programme unfolded through a delightful range of creative activities: from artistic design to edible and structural problem solving; from competitive team challenges to fun interactive games. Pupil enthusiasm ran consistently high as confidences grew week by week, thanks to the excellently organised and well resourced Fusion Team. 

Undoubtedly, the Berkshire Youth scheme has been greatly appreciated by many children, staff and parents alike. The Pines would like to extend their thanks to all involved  and our appreciation for the gifted Fusion bench; this generosity will be greatly prized within our school.
