Through a generous donation from local Lambeth firm Winn & Coales (Denso) Ltd, the Walcot Foundation has made a £15,000 grant to The Norwood School for its pilot Raising the Game project. The focus is pupils from black and minority ethnic backgrounds who have been identified as likely to struggle with the transition from primary school to secondary school. Through intensive early intervention, workshops and support to parents, the project seeks to improve pupils’ confidence, behaviour and to reduce exclusions in the school.
Winn & Coales (Denso) Ltd, established in 1883, has been at the forefront of cost-effective, long-term, corrosion prevention, weatherproofing and sealing technology for over 90 years. The company’s manufacturing site has been located in West Norwood for over 60 years with many of their employees drawn from the local area.
