Developing resilience in primary school children
BRF’s Barnabas in Schools is helping develop create mentally robust primary school pupils.
The Barnabas in Schools approach
So, how might Barnabas in Schools make a positive contribution to the bigger national picture? Following talks with the National Society in 2016 about their plans to promote character development, we initiated three new ‘Creating Character’ interactive Barnabas RE Days and a linked INSET training session to support pupils and staff in this area.
Teaching staff have the opportunity to go further, exploring their own school values, and considering how these might be further integrated into the foundations of general school life through the Barnabas in Schools linked INSET training session. (They’ll also gain a wealth of ideas to use within RE, collective worship or assemblies and other subject areas.)
To further develop this vital area they can discover a wide variety of free online material at barnabasinschools.org.uk.
