The AQA Unit Award Scheme

Please click on the internet link below for more details.


How the Unit Award Scheme (UAS) helps your learners

  • Rewards students for short units of work.

  • Provides the building blocks of a broad and balanced alternative curriculum.

  • Supports, motivates and gives a positive experience of learning.

  • Can be used as a stepping stone to other awards and or qualifications.

  • Can help improve life chances.

  • Provides clear short or long term accreditation pathways to meet individual student’s needs.

    The AQA Unit Award Scheme is invaluable as it is an important pathway for our students to receive accreditation for their achievements. It provides a wide range of units which are differentiated, making accreditation accessible to all pupils regardless of their ability. Furthermore, through allowing amendments and writing our own units, we are able to expand and customise units to our pupil's individual learning interests and needs.

Planting trees in the Community


Parent volunteers supporting 'Planting Trees' within our local community.

Volunteers wanted to help in the school garden and allotments!

Good Food on the Menu at Lark Hill School, Salford

Nutritious food is on the menu as part of Lark Hill Primary School’s community food growing project.

Newground Together, a member of the Together Housing Group, has granted the Pendleton school £17,971 to help their Parent Forum’s Wellbeing programme.

The funding will help pay for Support Worker Harry Melody and provide finance for plants and materials for the allotments.

The schools raised beds will be used to grow food, which can be used in the school to promote healthy eating.

Children and parents will be able to create new beds using recycled and salvaged materials, in and out of school hours.

The school has excellent links with other local agencies, and a casual conversation over the allotment can result in a family being signposted to much needed sources of support.

Wendy Hughes, the school’s Community Manager, said the new funding will help the school expand its horticultural programme even further.



She said: “The school plays a pivotal part in the community and this new funding will help us introduce children to creating healthy meals from nutritious ingredients.

“Many of our children live in high rise blocks and don’t have access to green spaces so we’re hoping to teach them skills so they can grow their own produce at home in vegetable tubs.

“And the support worker will engage with the wider community as we’ll be offering training for volunteers.”

Harry Melody, the support worker, said: “It’s a very exciting opportunity. Before I got involved with the forum, I was a lone parent and just sat around twiddling my thumbs.

“Now I have a real purpose and I’ve got big plans. And the kids are really excited as well. They’re signing up to a gardening club and getting involved with other projects in the gardens including the Farm to Fork Project with Tesco.

“It’s a really exciting for the school and we’re really thankful to get the funding.”

Peter Jordan, Newground Together’s Executive Director, added: “The parents’ forum are clearly keen to improve the life chances of the children and families associated with the school. Our Trustees were impressed with their application and are glad to support this project.”
