The Programme supports the requirements of the PSHE curriculum in the following ways:
- It helps to develop emotional awareness;
- It builds confidence and resilience; and
- It increases pupils’ ability to keep themselves mentally healthy.
How much curriculum time does the Programme take?
The Programme takes up very little time outside the allocated PSHE Ed curriculum. The stories fit neatly into the requirements to teach social and emotional skills by teaching an emotional vocabulary and facilitating children’s understanding of emotions. Our resources are designed to support children as they enter their classroom and to become part of their normal daily routine; they give an early indication to staff of any child that may need additional support.
As a charity we aim to ensure the benefits of the Emotional Wellbeing Programme are made available to as many children as possible.
We source external funding to support our cause and subsidize the delivery of our Programme and resources to keep the cost to schools as low as possible. We deliver our Programme at a concessionary rate and work with schools so that cost is not a barrier.
Our Programme is heavily subsidised and we ask schools for a concessionary rate (based on the percentage of pupils eligible for pupil premium) to show their commitment and to contribute to the cost of delivery.
We also ask schools for feedback so we can assess how effective our workshops are and ensure that they are having the desired impact for the children.
