It’s about building relationships with pupils, parents and staff, understanding education and the pressure schools face. It’s about finding engaging ways to help children discover strength of character, positivity under pressure and resilience in the face of whatever life throws at them.
Schools receive a top-secret box packed with equipment, more than 120 exciting lesson plans and online resources including our innovative judgement tracker to help pupils celebrate success and schools to evidence progress and their achievements.
