HeadStart Champions and BounceBack at North Beckton Primary School
We are working in partnership with Headstart Newham to develop our resilience. To visit the HeadStart page, please click here.
Life throws a lot at young people and sometimes they may struggle to overcome problems and challenges. HeadStart and BounceBack offer young people in Newham the opportunity to develop new skills so they can overcome challenges and ‘bounce back’ from tough situations.
HeadStart Champions can help support the development and delivery of a school’s resilience and well-being strategies. Being a HeadStart Champion helps you to develop problem solving and communication skills, creates stronger peer relationships and is an achievement young children can ultimately reflect on and be proud of.
Bouceback is a fun way for primary aged children to learn different tools and tricks to help them look after themselves. BounceBack makes building resilience an exciting experience; helping pupils with problem solving, setting goals, improving peer relationships and self-awareness. By doing so, young people can feel proud as they set new goals and achieve them and make new friends!
Bounceback Participants: “I’ve learnt that life is like an elastic band – we just need to keep bouncing back….”
“Our friends can help us and encourage us when things aren’t great.”
“I have improved my moods and I don’t hit out (as much) anymore. I know I need to listen to calming music sometimes.”
Headstart Champion: “I was amazed that I got chosen to be a Champion because now I get to help other people be more resilient. That makes me feel good and them feel good!”
