RWS Programme Features and Levels

"Education is a once in a lifetime opportunity to open children's hearts and minds to the unbelievable wonder of the universe."

Sir Anthony Seldon, speaking at 'Creating a Happier World' (event organised by 'Action for Happiness')

Some of the Programme's Learning Outcomes:

RWS is a character education programme that addresses: Resilience, Wellbeing, Success, Gratitude, Asking for Help and Helping Others, Happiness, Laughter (and Laughter Yoga!), Kindness to Self and Others, Meditation, Self-Belief, Teamwork, Goal Setting and Goal Planning. 

The RWS Programme will also help your pupils manage / reduce the stress associated with tests / exams.  Whilst we cannot get rid of SATs / change the content or amount of new tests brought in by the DfE, we can teach pupils how to minimise the stress associated with these tests. 

Staff well-being is addressed by the Silver package.  Additionally, the Gold package enhances community cohesion by working with pupils, parents and governors, as well as teachers.

Inclusion

All lesson plans and classroom teaching resources are designed with inclusion in mind, ensuring all pupils, including those identified as G&T and those having SEND, benefit fully from the programme.

Increasing Educational Success

Take a look at some of the research evidencing that increased wellbeing and resilience leads to higher educational outcomes. 

We will work closely with you to ensure the programme fits your timetable.  Your RWS membership includes login to this site's member pages, where you can access all lesson plans, activity worksheets and videos. 

Funding

The RWS programme can be an effective and inclusive way to allocate part of your Pupil Premium / FSM6 funding allocation. Elements of the programme, such as the Teacher presentation on the Silver package, can be allocated to different budgets, e.g. CPD. 

Struggling with funding? ​

Giving Back:  Some schools have bigger financial challenges than others.  The RWS programme places great emphasis on kindness, so we want to extend kindness to you by offering one 'Silver' level programme to one school, free of charge, each time we hit a financial milestone.  Each school that buys our programme helps us get closer to this milestone. Thank you! 

Business Sponsorship:  Additionally, we are working with businesses to enable us to offer the RWS programme to even more schools by funding or part-funding via business sponsorship.  If you know of any businesses that may be interested in sponsoring us to run RWS in your school, please let us know and we'll help you secure the funding by providing all the necessary information.
