As a new school coming into the PATHS® programme I have found the support given by the Barnardo’s coaches to be encouraging, positive and warm. Their approach to staff who have been initially hesitant and concerned has been really supportive, while they have been very encouraging with those teachers who are more motivated by the programme! As the coordinator within my school I couldn't ask for better support.

Redriff have seen a difference in the children that have now been experiencing the PATHS® curriculum for the past year and a half. Children are able to discuss their feelings with a lot more confidence and understanding. Within the playground children feel empowered to try to sort out minor issues with each other, rather than always seeking adult supervision. The children are also demonstrating using more mature vocabulary around feelings within other subjects such as literacy and guided reading sessions.
