Weaving Well-Being Programme

This affordable Positive Education programme consists of 10 lessons for each class level and is grounded in evidence-based interventions from the rapidly expanding field of Positive Psychology. Positive Psychology is the science of well-being. Each class level has a Teacher Resource Book and a Pupil Book. The Teacher Resource Book contains background information, lesson plans, supplementary activities and a PowerPoint presentation for each lesson.

The supplementary activities provide a wealth of opportunities for each concept to be embedded in the classroom and the whole school culture. Teachers are also provided with the opportunity to enhance their own well-being through various interventions and activities. The Pupil Book for each level builds into a highly individual and personal resource for the child’s future use. The programme is child-centred, practical and is designed to be easy to deliver in any classroom setting.
