How does Amazing People Schools describe its product?
Boosting wellbeing, inspiring students, and transforming schools.
Amazing People Schools supports the development of key character strengths including resilience, creativity, gratitude, and perseverance. These strengths have never been more important and increases the odds that our young people will flourish.
Our Theory of Change shares how Amazing People Schools can transform both primary and secondary schools, and support the positive development of skills, behavior, and attitudes.
'Amazing People Schools enables educators to create a bespoke model that suits their own school’s needs. At my previous school, it was a powerful tool for increasing the social capital of our students. My next project will be two-fold. Firstly, in making real the character traits we expect students to exhibit and enabling staff to recognise and reward these; and secondly, as a tool to empower pupil premium students to take on the selective test and gain access to grammar education. In short Amazing People Schools, when used well, is a lever for social mobility.'
What does it enable you to do?
Amazing People Schools teaches pupils about key figures in history. The fantastically engaging resources can be used during lesson, circle or form time, and for assemblies in both primary and secondary school settings. Each session includes an interactive story, video and audio stories, quizzes, lesson plans, assemblies, extended learning activities, wellbeing workouts, and toolkits, and is thoughtfully planned across the age groups.
Amazing People Schools has the HeadteacherChat Stamp of Approval because:
● It’s so easy to use, with engaging resources
● It helps to reduce workload
● It helps to teach pupils about key characters in history, and to establish your key values and embed an inclusive culture within the school
The learning platform helps young minds to develop curiosity about key people in history and to learn about resilience, empathy, and kindness. From Alan Turing, Emmeline Pankhurst, Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti, Mary Seacole,
Albert Einstein, to Charlotte Bronte, there are plenty of fascinating people to learn about.
“Amazing People Schools is a clever and engaging learning platform that is an invaluable tool for both primary and secondary schools. From it, you will be able to develop your curriculum in a fun and engaging way. We loved how easy it was to use, and how interesting the resources were.”
