"[I was] very excited to see the Life Education bus at school this morning for my daughter to enjoy. At 32, I still have fond memories of sitting on the bus, looking up at the magical midnight blue sky with twinkling lights. I remember about the body and organs, and of course the giraffe as well as well as the trip myself and my classmates made on a rocket! Thank you for giving me such an amazing memory and for those you have given to other children."
Sarah, Teacher and Mum, Northamptonshire
Our memorable life skills sessions are delivered in a mobile classroom driven into school grounds. Coram Life Education takes a three-strand approach addressing children’s knowledge, skills and attitudes, and our programmes are aligned with the National Curriculum (Citizenship, PSHE Education), covering all Key Stages.
Coram Life Education helps schools meet their statutory requirements for children’s Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development, and Ofsted inspection criteria for personal development, behaviour and welfare. Our programmes are also aligned with Scotland’s Curriculum for Excellence.
Children's experience of Coram Life Education’s sessions is fun, engaging and memorable. Children meet Harold the Giraffe puppet (‘Healthy Harold’), and friends, have discussions and watch short films about healthy eating, legal and illegal drugs and their effects, the body and how it works, friendships and their influence, and how choices and behaviours can affect dreams and aspirations. Coram Life Education’s interventions include challenging social norms – misperceptions of peers’ engagement with risky behaviour – to engender more positive behaviours.
