The contribution that our Heroes Programme can make towards good behaviour and safety, and to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development has been evident throughout its 8 years in existence.

“Children with higher levels of emotional, behavioural, social and school well-being on average have higher levels of academic achievement and are more engaged in school, both concurrently and in later years.”

‘Back Your Hero’ – workshop for parents

Children who have completed the Heroes Programme are able to relate better to others, solve their own problems and express themselves more positively. In response to this the Kick Start Training team have come up with ‘Back Your Hero’, a 1 1/2 hour workshop for parents.

It gives parents and carers a taste of their children’s journey of discovery through similar exercises and activities to the Heroes Programme, helps them to understand their child’s personal, social and emotional needs and encourages them to empathise and be more supportive and more involved in their children’s development.
