What is a Full Service Extended School?

An Extended School provides a range of services and activities, before, during or beyond the school, day, to help meet the needs of children, their families and the wider community.

FSES applies an integrated, flexible, holistic approach working in partnership with family, health and community services to support young people. It is characterised by collaboration and partnership with neighbouring schools and statutory and voluntary sector agencies.


To reduce barriers to learning using 5 key target areas have been identified:

  • Pupil Engagement
  • Parental Engagement
  • Community Engagement
  • Transition
  • Health

“The Full Service Extended Schools programme, which operates within the Belfast Boys’ Model School and Belfast Model School for Girls, fulfils the key priorities of DE, namely tackling disadvantage by addressing barriers to learning, putting young people’s emotional wellbeing at the centre of education and transforming communities”
