Barnardo’s have been delivering The PATHS® Programme for Schools (UK Version) in schools across London since March 2013.

Between 2013-2016 we were involved through the Big Lottery’s Realising Ambition Programme in the following areas:

  • Waltham Forest
  • Tower Hamlets
  • North Southwark
  • North Greenwich
  • Lewisham

Since 2016 we have been working in schools in the Wandsworth borough of London, and begin implementing in schools in Richmond borough in September 2018. Both areas are continuing to grow and bring new schools onto the programme.

“The PATHS® programme has integrated fantastically into our school ethos of inclusion and achievement for all. Through systematic, regular support and training from the PATHS® tutor, all members of staff are equipped with a shared vocabulary for supporting children in developing their skills in social interaction, problem solving, recognising and dealing with emotions amongst other skills. An individual intervention programme for those children needing more practise at these PSHE skills comes in the form of Friendship Groups, a small-group, adult-led programme where we have already begun to see a rise in these children’s self-esteem and social skills”.
