Brilliant Me & My Mind is specifically designed to help your child:
This course uses the power of storytelling and creative activities to help children build the confidence to take risks and make mistakes. 'Brilliant Billy the Bunny’ accompanies the children throughout the course to help them navigate their emotions in a fun and supportive environment.
Each day, two stories are shared with the children based around the power of our mindset. Each story is followed by a creative activity which helps them link the learning from the story to their everyday lives. Daily mindfulness activities are included to help the children learn to manage their emotions.
The stories shared in The Brilliant Me & My Mind course are based around the following themes:
An example story shared during the week is the fantastic ‘Beautiful Oops’ by Barney Saltzberg. This book encourages the children to understand that when we think we’ve made a mistake, we should think of it as an opportunity to make something beautiful. Through looking at the illustrations, the children reflect on how they feel about the mistakes they make; every smudge, spill, and failed drawing can be the beginning of something new and exciting. After reading the inspiring book, the children are then challenged to turn a range of ‘mistakes’ into new opportunities.

Address: Maple Road, Surbiton, Surrey, KT6 4DS
We are honored to be able to offer this course at St. Andrew’s Church. This school is one of the two in Surbiton, recognized as a parish church from the Church of England. The school’s rich history can be seen throughout the interior of this school and it helps allow for an atmosphere of growth and learning in life skills for the children as they learn from our Role Models.
Our courses are available for children aged 5-7, 8-10 & 11-13. They typically run for either 3 or 5 consecutive days.
All our courses are run in small groups. This ensures our Role Model can get to know each child individually.
To help with this, before the course begins, we ask you to answer a few questions about your child and any specific needs they might have. We will also ask about food allergies, medical conditions and any additional needs that our Role Model needs to know about.
It will only take a minute or two, and it ensures our Role Model has all the information they need to ensure your child has the best experience possible.
At Role Models, our priority is the welfare of our students and staff. We have therefore put strict health & safety policies in place to minimize risks related to COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
from parents & children that attended courses in the resilience series.
Fun and fast paced learning! There will be a mixture of games, challenges, stories and activities all delivered by our Role Models who are experienced with working with this age range of children. There will be breaks built into the structure of the day including a 30 minute play during the lunch break.
Our courses are built on three elements:
Our courses follow an education framework developed by teachers, education experts and business leaders. This framework, based on the work of the Partnership for 21st century learning', defines the skills and knowledge that children need to thrive at school, at home and beyond.
Our courses have been written by our Character Education team who are highly qualified educators with over 24 years of teaching experience. Our content emphasises the importance of developing essential key life skills alongside academic attainment, in order to thrive in life.
Our highly experienced team of Role Models are passionate about both education and social & emotional wellbeing. They’re energetic, engaging and curious. They’re adept at combining educational rigour with fun, to create active learning environments that children love. All have been interviewed by our Recruitment Team and are reference and DBS checked.
Yes of course! Contact us for information about multi-buy and referral discounts.
Our courses are not designed only for those who may be struggling with specific life skills. We believe all children can build on these essential skills in order to reach their full potential. Your child may need a boost in confidence, to strengthen their resilience or they may just need an opportunity to go outside of their comfort zone and challenge themselves by working with new people.
At some venues we are able to look after your child for additional hours before and after the usual course time. We call this the Extended Day package. Outside of the course hours, one of our Role Models will run some extra-curricular games and activities.
An Extended Day Package costs between £15 and £25 depending on the number of hours of additional childcare. If this is available, it will be listed at the top of the course page, showing the specific hours and the price. If the message is not shown at the top of the course page, then we don’t offer an extended day at this venue.
It will also be shown at the checkout as an optional extra, charged for each day of the course. If you would like to use the Extended Day facility but only on specific days, please call or email us with your requirements.
