What We Do

Our approach equips children and young people with the skills to thrive in the 21st century.

We apply the science to develop the skills of mental resilience and emotional wellbeing to create psychologically fit adults of tomorrow: attributes that are critical for success in future.

We have worked with Bounce Forward for more than a decade. The high quality training results in confident and engaged staff who have the experience to teach the lessons. We have a clear structure to our PSHE offering to the personal development of our students. The emphasis on developing life skills through exploring experiences and real life scenarios, that build year on year, has made a positive impact to the school the wider community.

Our approach

Our approach is based on this simple premise – “to pass on skills and capacity to be psychologically fit and mentally resilient, we must apply them in our own lives first.”

We base our approach and training on solid research, theory and evidence

We teach skills and strategies that work in the real world

The adults matter: their role is vital in helping children and young people to be mentally resilient and thrive

We build psychological tools for living

Psychological fitness is the combination of mental resilience and emotional wellbeing. These attributes deliver benefits across our lives. This learning is linked to greater educational achievement, improve productivity, less crime, better physical health, reduced mortality, higher incomes, and more participation in community life.

Bounce Forward is about rebalancing education, and asking schools to teach psychological fitness as part of the core curriculum by professionally trained teachers.

We have a strong track record of increasing children’s emotional wellbeing and equipping them with the skills deal with changing environments and navigate effectively through life.
