We recommend that the programme is used for primary-aged children, particularly KS2. Many of the themes and session plans could be adapted for younger children and the activities could be supported, differentiated, and simplified for KS1, but it is the level of discussion and facilitation skills of the ELSA and/or Pastoral TA or facilitating adult who would be able to adjust the language and develop the discussion to the level of the children’s understanding and need.

Whilst aimed at primary children, we believe that the resource would be very suitable and accessible for year 7 children in middle schools or as part of small group nurture intervention for transition work from year 6 to year 7. Many children who have missed the opportunity for enhanced support around their emotional health and wellbeing when going onto secondary would still benefit from this opportunity at an intervention level.
