An award winning whole school approach to enhancing kindness

About this Event

If you are interested in introducing a proven, hands on and fun way to address bullying - then this two day workshop on how to set a unique approach in your school, club, or group is well worth attending.

Ideal for teachers, classroom assistants, counsellors, groups and for individuals who want to make a difference in the life of a bullied child.

This course is based on our work in primary schools and with youth groups. We worked with over 1, 500 children to explore the impact of the Kindness Programme.

The Kindness Programme grew out of a project we ran for children with additional needs. They told us they needed other children to be more understanding - to be kinder.

So, based on evidence that most bullying occurs because a child is seen to be different in some way, we set about designing a hands on and fun way of delivering the message that everyone is different. Every one of us is unique in some way.

We were blown away by the results, not only did children tell us how much they enjoyed their learning, we found rates of kindness towards each other escalated in the weeks after. Not only that, but those with the lowest self esteem scored significantly higher levels immediately after taking part and for up for three months (we haven't measured longer term as yet). Oh yes - teachers also told us they loved the style of delivery and wanted to do more experiential learning with the children.

​Proven to enhance acts of kindness and improve self esteem in those children most likely to be bullied.

The Kindness Programme was a finalist in the national Teach First Award.

Course will take place over a weekend in Southampton. Venue to be detailed. Course is subsidised by a generous grant from Tesco's.
