Keeping Adults SafeFace to Face (Classroom)

The Keys to Happier Living Toolkit for Primary Schools (KS2) is an evidence-based resource for teachers to support children to learn, develop and embed the core skills for emotional wellbeing and resilience. It is based on the ‘GREAT DREAM’ model by Action for Happiness – a movement for positive social change, with the goal of happiness for everyone. The Keys to Happier Living toolkit has received the PSHE Association Quality Mark indicating that it meets the requirements of their ten principles for effective Personal, Social and Health Education.
“Provides a wide variety of stimulating and creative ideas for developing skills that support happier living and wellbeing into the lives of pupils and parents/carers" ~ PSHE Association
"A fantastic toolkit which has been shown to bring considerable benefits. Teachers will especially appreciate the huge array of ideas and creative resources. This program fills a vitally important gap in our schools and I highly recommend it" ~ Sir Anthony Seldon (Co-founder of Action for Happiness, Headteacher & Author).
The programme consists of an assembly and 11 subsequent lessons, reinforced throughout the school year. A Children’s Journal is used each session to embed learning and an information leaflet is available for parents and carers. The programme is more effective when staff integrate the ‘keys’ into their own lives and an Adult Journal helps staff to achieve this and thereby to teach the ‘keys’ to pupils from the perspective of personal experience, knowledge and greater integrity.
Peter Harper, Clinical Psychologist and Val Payne, Teacher used their wealth of career experience locally to jointly devise and pilot the programme. The training has been organised and will be delivered by members of the Northamptonshire Educational Psychology Service.
At least one person from each participating school needs to be a qualified teacher.
