The Children's Coach 

                    Creating Confident Young People

Our Programmes for Schools

“The programmes have been a tremendous success for all involved due to your high quality delivery and ability to make every child feel extremely special”- Head teacher

 

“I feel that the opportunities that have been provided for our children have been fantastic. The improvements have been visible across all subjects”- Teacher

 

“Amazing results! Teachers reporting greater involvement in class discussions and motivation across the curriculum”- Lead Behaviour Professional

 

“We have worked with The Children’s Coach for a number of years now and feedback from children has invariably been positive and the proof has been seeing primary age children, lacking confidence and self-esteem, grow into positive young people, willing to support others and act as ambassadors for the work they do”.- Head teacher

Little Leaders aims to develop skills that the young people need to be successful in school and life. We discuss a different skill each week, learn and practice an exercise to support the children in this area and record our ideas in our Little Leaders booklet before presenting to the group.

  

At the end of the Programme the young people are awarded with a certificate and a Little Leaders  Badge- which is often worn on their school uniform, like a prefect or school council badge. The Little Leaders will be encouraged to support other children around the school in their Leadership role.

“The self-esteem of the children who have taken part in the programme has grown. The teachers report that they are now more confident to ‘have a go’; they contribute more in lessons and are less concerned about learning through making mistakes.

 

This is because they recognise that their contribution is valued and they have a heightened sense of self- worth” – Head teacher

Moving On Up equips young people with the tools for a successful transition to High School.


The young people have the opportunity to explore any concerns and have all their questions answered.


Our team of Student Coaches act as ‘Moving on Up’ Mentors, co- teaching some of the sessions and creating a buddy system so that the young people have a circle of support and friendship at the High School.


At the end of the Programme the Student Coaches hold a Sneak Preview Event where the group spend an evening at the High School. They will be  will be presented with a Certificate and trophy in assembly to acknowledge their achievements.

The EXCELLENCE ACADEMY aims to develop the qualities required for young people to be their best. 


Each week we explore a different quality of excellence- including teamwork, manners, communication and presentation skills, self belief and leadership skills.There's  lots of discussion, role play, group challenges  and presenting. Each week there will be a sports session (including rock climbing and trampolining) where the young people can demonstrate each quality.

The young people are supported in their work by our  team of Student Coaches- students who have also been through one of our Programmes and now support others in their journey.

The Programme concludes with a ‘Celebration of Excellence’ Event in which the school, family and friends are invited to join us celebrate the young people’s achievements.
