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.
