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.
