Coram Life Education’s specialist programme is aimed at children aged 3-11 years and provides valuable education about how they can look after their bodies and minds using fun, interactive and age-specific activities.  The programme is delivered by qualified educators in the mobile classrooms using an interactive model of the human body, fibre optic lighting and a multi-media suite. Films and puppetry created by BAFTA award-nominated puppeteers from CBBC television are also used. As well as healthy lifestyle choices, the programme addresses issues such as self-esteem, drugs awareness, assertiveness and anti-bullying techniques, and positive friendships.

During  2014  our three Educators worked in schools for 410 days, visiting 140 schools and seeing 32,702children. The service to the schools is continuing - now covered by Rachel Hart and Michelle Jenkins.  Rachel has been particularly active in sourcing valuable funding over the last 2 years, in particular to support the work in Bury schools through the Bury East Alcohol Partnership. Michelle Jenkins has taken a lead on the IT including an on-line evaluation tool completed by children and teachers, which among other things,  provides schools with important evidence for Ofsted Inspections, stakeholders and parent newsletters.
