A programme in schools to support children in building resilience, confidence and self-esteem. The results have been fantastic with 100% of children demonstrating increased confidence and happiness as well as reducing their level of worry. Schools have reported that the children taking part have been more willing to talk about how they are feeling, more in control of emotions such as anger and more engaged in their learning. Feedback has also shown that children involved in the programme made accelerated progress in end of term tests.
Data from the Office of National Statistics, March 2018 shows 26.9% of children in the UK experience medium or low levels of happiness. In turn this creates low confidence, a lack of resilience and low self-esteem. Schools have estimated that around 25% of children in each class fall into this category.
The ShineTime programme has been created to teach children how to be more in control of their emotions and reduce the impact external negative events can have on their lives. The programme helps children increase their confidence and happiness levels whilst helping them to recognise they are ‘Perfect, just as they are’.
A programme of 4 workshops delivered by the Wellbeing People in school over 4 consecutive weeks teaching children tools and techniques to better manage their emotional wellbeing.
This programme is designed for children who may be suffering with low confidence and self-esteem supporting them to positively develop these areas and recognise their true potential. The programme is also suitable for children who may be experiencing higher anxiety levels for example, prior to exams or preparing to move to a new school.
Train the Trainer
The Train the Trainer programme provides your nominated Trainers with the knowledge and skills to effectively deliver the ShineTIme programme for children from Y2 to Y6 and includes all the resources they need for delivery. It is recommended that 2 members of staff from each school qualify as ShineTime trainers to provide sufficient resource within the school.
For the trainers, the programme provides 1½ days training on the content for delivery and includes information on why it works and how to get the best results. This is followed by a further ½ day, once they have had the opportunity to deliver all or part of the programme, to review effectiveness, answer questions and perfect delivery.
Training is also provided for a nominated ShineTIme Co-ordinator within each school. The Co-ordinator is responsible for obtaining parental consent and collating the feedback pre and post each programme. This is an important role, supporting the trainer to monitor the results achieved and ensuring parental engagement. The Coordinator training is an initial ½ day followed by ½ day with the trainers to provide a collaborative approach for successful delivery.
