What Students and Teachers Have to Say About Our Learning Curriculum and Live Assemblies

Teacher Testimonials

“The project complements the resources we already use but because it is so different from the set resources it livens things up and seems to have more of an impact on all the children. Our teachers liked the fact that it was for all the children and not for the few that are identified or that tell staff they are struggling so the children who often get missed are also getting the support they need. ”

“The children have been using a lot of the language from the resources in the playground when talking to friends and have been happy a lot happier talking about the way they feel with each other and are a lot more open in general about how they feel and what makes them happy/sad/angry. ”

“We used the resources regarding racism, as a whole school, a few weeks ago and it proved very successful in encouraging discussions and how they felt and how it made others feel. ”

“We are extremely happy with the resources from the Lily-Jo Project. We have been using all of the resources with the students, the 4 to 7s have been using a lot of the colouring pages and printouts which they have really enjoyed and they have triggered lots of discussions.”

“A lot of the parents have said they have been using the online resources too and have found it helpful not only personally but also when communicating with their children. ”

“A lot of the teachers have been using it and find it helpful. It is fantastic and it is definitely having a positive impact on the school. ”

“We have been using the resources with children in KS1 and KS2 and the teacher delivering has been very pleased with the project. The children are enjoying the videos and the songs and the resources are easy to follow and use. It is helpful that some of the sessions are fairly short as this allows it to be used when there are smaller slots in the timetables. Other colleagues have shown an interest in finding out more and even how they can help family members outside of school. ”

“There are so many different lessons to choose from. Such powerful, yet simple explanations that kids can understand and relate too.”

“Brilliant, user friendly, and cross-curricular.”

“Thank you again for delivering the in-person workshops for our students. Testament to you that people are still talking about it. The kids LOVED it - what a special thing The Lily-Jo Project have going on.”

Teacher Testimonials

“"It is incredible, inspiring, entertaining, engaging. The children absolutely love it and the messages are so important. It's something we're going to run through the whole school, it's something we are going to embed throughout our policy, throughout our classrooms, throughout our ethos in school. ”

“Lily-Jo and the team are able to connect with every student from age 11 to age 18. The content of the sessions is pitched perfectly and feedback from students and staff is extremely positive. Highly recommended! ”

“It is fantastic and everybody enjoys it.”

“All the children were able to tell me what each letter of the word HERO meant and how it can help them. They told me what the Lily Jo Project was about and how important it is to look after our mental health. Despite being new to the project they loved it. Every class gave me a big thumbs up for the workshop.”

“It is a great way to start the morning. Everybody was up dancing and having fun and the whole atmosphere for the rest of the day is positive and calm”

“In today’s English lesson, children were writing letters and I have at least 5 children mention positive words that were learnt from Lily Jo”

“One teacher has started to add in ‘You are Unstoppable’ into her lessons. After each lesson she says ‘You are…’ and the children call out ‘Unstoppable’.”

Teacher Testimonials

“Lily-Jo, your energy is infectious”

“I was impressed with what the children could tell me about the workshops. Very much enjoyed by all.”

“I think it is absolutely amazing. We love every bit of it, the children are really engaged. What they learn here is the most important thing that they will ever learn. Regardless of primary or secondary age, what we can teach them in 6 hours a day, 5 days a week, is nothing in comparison to them leaving school with that kind of self awareness and ability to talk about their feelings and emotions, and know what's going on.”
