Services for Schools
A Journey to Excellence with PEEK
We are committed to effective and successful collaborative working for the benefit of local children and young people in the communities PEEK serve. Over the last year we have worked with 18 schools throughout Glasgow.
PEEK is able to deliver a range of play, creative and educational opportunities which can meet the needs of children and young people whilst developing them as learners and improving their lives. At the same time we can also work with teachers through training opportunities to develop their capacity in providing a range of positive play and creative experiences.
Staff and Volunteer Training
PEEK delivers a practical training course tailored to school staff or pupil leaders. Training will provide individuals with skills, ideas and experience in leading play and creative activities in curricular, extra curricular and playground time.

Physical games and activities help the development of fundamental movement skills and build a strong foundation for future participation in physical activity along with the associated mental, physical and social benefits.
A nationally recognized qualification which supports young people to develop into artist’s and art leaders. PEEK encourages children to gain their Award through creative, technical and supportive roles.
PEEK can deliver before and after curricular time. Through, breakfast club support, playtime and lunch time support. During these play sessions, Play Rangers support learner led play activities which encourage greater levels of creative and physical activity and positive interaction with peers.
We use creatively to explore emotional health and well-being. Young People develop a performance or artwork in response to their learning to promote positive mental health. They share their work at an event which they will organize and lead – whilst gaining accreditation through an Arts Award.
This award winning project was designed by Young People. Groups develop their own artistic project to engage their peers in positive discussion exploring gender stereotyping, body image and sexualisation in the media. Young people will be encouraged and supported to gain accreditation through an Arts Award.

Over a 10-12 week period, pupils will work with PEEK through a variety of workshops which are entirely flexible and can be tailored to meet the needs of each school and group.
Our Early Intervention project works with Young People aged and offers a range of workshops tailored at reducing reoffering rates within school settings.

PEEK have a proven track record of delivering to families in need. This was brought sharply into focus during COVID 19 and I would have feared greatly for the wellbeing of many of our families had it not been for the support of PEEK. PEEK staff are adept at connecting with people and in turn connecting families to the correct source for support. At the core of their mission is to be people-led. They are consistently advocating on behalf of children and families and have strong links to the community they work in which enables them to establish initiatives such as the PEEKACHEW to assist delivering hot meals. Children in school are always delighted when they see the PEEKACHEW food truck although I am not naïve enough to assume that for some children their feeling is not one of delight but one of relief. Without PEEK they may not have the guarantee of a hot meal, a safe place to play or an interaction with someone who genuinely cares for them. There is a measurable impact on the development of the many children PEEK work with through PEEK’s Play projects. We notice this impact through observations of interactions through our play-based curriculum. We are keenly aware of the inequality that exists in our community and PEEK have always been true to their vision to support children, families, and young people in aspiring for a life free from poverty and inequality.” – Charles Neil, Depute Head Teacher, Dalmarnock Primary School.
