"Wow! The children and I really enjoyed the new Bounce Programme. There's definitely a gap in the market and Bounce hits the spot. Although we always try to prepare our children as well as we possibly can for the transition, I think the power of Bounce is that it gives the ownership over to the children. It's always a worry when they leave primary how they will face the changes and uncertainties, but I feel confident that they have tools to succeed in the future."

-- Jenny, Year 6 Teacher and Key Stage 2 Lead


Training Overview


This course is a 1-full day of training either online or in-person.

Through a train-the-trainer format, you will be led through seven sessions that you will then teach to your Year 6 pupils (or Year 5’s in the Summer Term). The sessions include all lesson plans, and comprehensive trainer resources and support materials. These resources allow you to facilitate highly interactive, needs-based, and fun activities, which provide learning opportunities to enable all children, (from most vulnerable and challenged, to the most able) to gain meaningful and tailored practical skills. You will also learn about the psychological reasons why the Bounce Programme is so important for this age group, and how it can change the trajectory of children’s life-long sense of ability to learn, achieve and have self-agency. By the end of the programme, pupils will be prepared for the excitement and challenge at a critical time of social and emotional development.
