The demonstration lessons were excellent and allowed me to see them from a child’s point of view. Looking forward to becoming familiar with the lessons and implementing them.
A very enjoyable day – thank you

Well done – we were kept engaged. Course was very enjoyable. Great to have resources available in Irish. Very useful that the programme is so well laid out and follows on – gives teachers plenty to build on!

A very enjoyable day, excellent programme, excellent delivery – very enjoyable. I have learned today… that I can change academic performance using this Programme… also made me question my own listening skills! Really interesting and well implemented day
I found the modelled lessons particularly useful to see how experienced PATHS teachers use the lesson script as a guide but are able to adapt their lessons to suit their style/the needs of the class/their own experiences.
“The Coaching support over the 4 years has made all the difference in how well embedded PATHS® has become in our school and in the staff's level of enthusiasm for PATHS®. Our two coaches have both been fantastic role models and cheerleaders for the delivery of PATHS® and a great emotional support to the staff.” (NI Principal)
I used the traffic light steps when I had an argument with my sister. They helped me to tell her how I was feeling and we sorted out the problem
P5 Pupil St Anthony’s Primary
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.

PATHS® has equipped the children with the vocabulary and skills to recognise their own and each others feelings/emotions
Natasha Tomlin, Grange Primary School, London
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.

The children are more emotionally aware since the start of the programme.

PATHS® has taught me that all feelings are OK but the way we react is sometimes not OK.
Oyinade, Teacher, London
Training was very thorough and I was given really useful strategies. I refer back to the posters and use whole class strategies all the time in class.

PATHS® teaches us how to feel other people’s feelings and treat them the way you would like to be treated
Sabrina, Year 3, Vauxhall Primary School, London
PATHS® is a time when we all gather around in a calm and safe place and talk about what happens to us and different feelings.
