Welcome to The Thumbs Up Education Programme. The programme has been formulated to help primary school children make the transition to secondary school as seamless and stress free as possible. Thumbs Up can be presented to any child of any age, and can be adapted to your school, your children. Whilst we focus primarily on the transition towards the end year 6, throughout the year we tackle such issues as self-confidence, self-esteem, positive thinking, resilience and much much more with any age group in class groups, small groups and individuals.

The programme has been developed with the many concerns that can arise for primary school children upwards to secondary school age.  Emotional, physical and mental changes are heightened at this time, and coupled with such issues as the gargantuan leap to secondary school, SATs, GCSE's etc can lead to children of all confidence levels and academic abilities struggling with these issues, which can thus lead to issues of low confidence and self-esteem. By implementing the Thumbs Up Programme in your child's school can mean ensuring a positive mental wellbeing for the years to come. 

IMPORTANT NEWS

A NEW PARTNERSHIP FOR THUMBS UP

Thumbs Up are incredibly proud and privileged to announce that we are now working in partnership with a new Wirral based company called Metamorphosis Educational Consultancy.  Metamorphosis helps your SEN child to achieve their full potential academically.  The tutors, Jo and Clare support your child in developing the necessary skills to thrive, and as such I feel that the work that they do, along with the work that Thumbs Up do - together, can enable a child to flourish on all levels.  Whilst the two businesses remain independent of each other, we have established that there is most certainly a crossover between mental health issues that can often surround children with special educational needs.  For instance low self-esteem, low confidence and anxiety.  In identifying this, the two companies will be able to ensure that if a child presents with either issue impacting their wellbeing, that we can offer an alternative and also extra support.

Please take a look at their website, a truly fantastic initiative that Thumbs Up are delighted to be working with:-
