  • “We are very proud of our children as reflective learners. Children at our school really are respectful, kind, tolerant, committed, resilient and confident.”

    — Mrs Li-Juan Ellerton, Headteacher, Waltham St Lawrence Primary School

  • “I chose Waltham St Lawrence for my daughter because it demonstrated the value of Kindness more than any other school I visited. From the moment I walked in, I felt that this is a school that does things differently.”

    — The father of a child in the Reception class


The pandemic has emphasised the challenging need for children to gain knowledge & skills to deal with anxiety & stress & manage the social & emotional aspects of their lives. In addition, primary schools in England must now teach Relationships & Health education alongside traditional subjects. THE BIG THINK provides ready-to-deliver lesson kits to meet both these existing needs & the new expectations but village schools tend to find such resources are outside the scope of their budgets.


For village/small schools keen to have THE BIG THINK life-skills lesson kits but struggling with limited budgets, donations will go towards their annual subscriptions. Using this programme children in these schools will be better equipped to deal with stress & anxiety, learn how to develop a healthy relationship with themselves & others, gain skills & develop mindsets that help them do well academically so they can lead happy, safe, fulfilling lives, making positive contributions to society.
