At Commando Joe’s we pride ourselves on recruiting the best of the best. This is why, when it came to devising and writing this ground-breaking curriculum, we called in the education specialists; Wise Owl Trust.
Based in East Manchester, Wise Owl is a small Multi Academy Trust with big ambitions — for their children, families and communities. They have transformed their three primary schools and their pupils’ life chances with their innovative approach to learning. Now being ranked among the top 3% in the country, with remarkable turnarounds in Ofsted-ratings.
Joining forces, we have combined Commando Joe’s experience in delivering exciting sessions with Wise Owl’s education expertise and pioneering spirit. The Wise Owl Trust and Commando Joe’s R.E.S.P.E.C.T character programme encourages learning through adventure, teamwork and resilience. All in a practical context.Which in the challenging times that we find ourselves in, this is the perfect foundation for us all to build upon. Combined with our ethos of ‘No Child Left Behind’, our character programme provides a great foundation for all children. Getting the chance to achieve, be resilient, tolerate others and make great choices – inside and outside of school.
“As soon as I met Sophie in 2016 I was blown away by the passion and drive that she and the Trust have to achieve the best for their children and community,” says Commando Joe’s founder Mike Hamilton. “We are forever grateful for their support and expertise – as I’m sure thousands of teachers, children, parents and Senior Leaders across the UK are too.”
Since combining forces, the Wise Owl team have created over 300 missions for Commando Joe’s, with Sophie writing our Early Years and Transition programme alongside many more.
“I like to say that at Wise Owl Trust we prepare our children of the tests of life, not just a life of tests,” says Sophie. “We do things differently, we innovate, empower, encourage and we want to foster ambitions – not just for our schools but our communities. We have seen the amazing results our bespoke Character curriculum has had on our own schools. Working with Commando Joe’s to create this curriculum has been an exciting way to share our expertise nationally and help even more children achieve their full potential.”
