The Brilliant Primary Schools programme is a set of videos and activities that introduce themes of happiness, wellbeing, flourishing, resilience, positivity and personal responsibility to children aged 8 to 11. Although these videos target this particular age range, it is perfectly possible to show them to older children too. Our view is that the earlier children get these messages, the better they will be at coping with the world as it is.
The videos themselves contain a total of 75 minutes of learning. However, the activities and ‘homework’ mean that the learning can be extended to fit a much longer time frame. Each video comes with a set of facilitator notes complete with discussion prompts, follow-up tasks and extension activities.
This programme can be combined with our secondary, teachers and parenting videos to generate a common language and a set of principles that embeds positivity into the school culture. The ripple effect will extend far beyond the school gates.
