REMARKABLE ME IS A 7 WEEK TRANSITIONAL SUPPORT PROGRAMME THAT HELPS CHILDREN PREPARE FOR SECONDARY SCHOOL BY OFFERING ESSENTIAL SUPPORT, GUIDANCE & THE NECESSARY TOOLS TO HELP THEM PROGRESS SMOOTHLY, SAFELY & CONFIDENTLY
why remarkable me?
Are you worried about the growing pressure your child is under while preparing for secondary school?
You’re certainly not alone
The transition to secondary school can be a distressing & scary time for any child.
It can affect sleep patterns, cognitive functioning, behaviour, emotional well-being & physical problems such as headaches, stomach aches & skin conditions.
Unfortunately there have also been many cases in the UK where the stress & pressure of moving schools have led to more serious & enduring mental health issues.
Remarkable Me is a 7 Week programme that is run one day a week for 2 hours in a host school.
Each week has a different theme full of activities and discussion time to help children build resilience, confidence and help to prepare them for secondary school.
Week 1 - The Journey Starts Here
This week is all about setting our intentions for the programme, making friends, supporting each other and identifying the children's primary concerns are about moving to secondary school.
Week 2 - Discrimination & Celebrating Difference
We feel that it is so important to teach children that it is healthy to be unique and different. Through arts, crafts and games this week we offer an Equality Awareness tool kit that is enriching and healthy.
Week 3 - Cyberbullying & Staying Safe
Bullying is one of the key concerns children have expressed about going up to secondary school. Living in such a technology based world, we feel it is important to teach children about cyberbullying and how to stay safe online.
Week 4 - Creative Expression
This week we focus on teaching the children how they can express themselves in a healthy and positive way. Through creative expression we encourage the children to experiment with all kinds of fun, dynamic and creative activities to help build their emotional literacy and confidence.
Week 5 - Coping With Change
This is a very important week, as we have learned through previous programmes that children tend to repress negative emotions or release them in unhealthy ways.
We support the children to learn how to understand their emotional blocks so they can communicate more effectively, and we give them the right tools so they can become more resilient when dealing with life changing circumstances.
Week 6 - Setting Intentions & Reaching Goals
This week is based around the children's future goals, what they want to achieve, how they can set positive intentions for themselves and stay focused and happy.
Week 7 - Graduation
The final week of the programme is all about celebrating the children's accomplishments on the programme. For the final session children will be encouraged to perform or share something of their choice. From previous programmes, this has ranged from singing, dancing, a sporting activity or showing a piece of artwork they feel particularly proud of.
The children will also be awarded their Remarkable Me Certificate and tons of praise for all their amazing achievements.
