According to a Key Stage 2 pupil at Oakdale Junior School in London, Bryn is ‘a genius’. However, his friends and family know the truth.
Bryn worked in various UK schools for 25 years as a Teacher, Deputy Head and Acting Head. Over time, he was becoming increasingly frustrated that outside agencies were putting undue pressure on teachers and learners. Many primary schools were focussing only on English, Phonics, Guided Reading and Mathematics, with certain subjects put to one side. Subjects were being taught in boxes and experience shows this is not how we learn best. Bryn therefore decided to create educational resources that develop confidence in key areas of the curriculum through physical activity and founded Tagtiv8 Active Learning Games in 2012.
Chris is head teacher at Parklands School. He says...
"I just want to share #positivity in Education. I am not a moaner, I am not a whinger, I am not scared of challenge, but I have a love, a real love to make a difference. I want to share how you can spread love and smiles through a school - any school. I went to the most deprived, the lowest of the low where nobody believed in the staff or the children. I want to share an adventure of how a school with 90% FSM went from 150 exclusions to 0. How a school went from zero to hero in 24 months..."
