Creating a flourishing school is not
a matter of chance. It takes effort and
dedication, and science.
Ask parents what they want for their children’s futures and they will tend to use words like happy, enthusiastic, joyful, successful and able to deal with the ups and downs of life.
In short, they want their children to flourish. Ask staff to describe the kind of school in which they work best, and many of the same words apply.
Creating a flourishing school is not a matter of chance. It takes effort and dedication, and science. Positive Education is a way of combining traditional subjects such as English and Maths with life skills such as resilience, happiness and wellbeing. With Positive Education children are happier, more focused, more able to solve problems, and more engaged in their learning, raising academic achievement as well. The benefits do not end there. Staff too can increase their resilience, classrooms are better ordered, teacher stress is reduced and feelings of job satisfaction rise.
This is achieved by applying the well-research principles of positive psychology in a school setting. Understanding how these principles can be incorporated into school life, adding greatly to the effectiveness and joy of teaching is fundamental to what we do. We help schools to incorporate these principles into both the classroom and the staff room.
Creating a school where staff and pupils can flourish, to deal with challenges as they arise, and to have faith in their abilities is one of the most exciting and rewarding journeys a school community can undertake, and we will be with you every step of the way.
