What is it?

The Impact & Change Programme is a results driven programme that has been created by top educational practitioners to improve five key areas of pupil’s development. Children are assessed at the start and end of the programme in 10 aspects across the five areas (which are detailed below). Improvements are then detailed in a unique report on each child’s progression which can be used for Ofsted reporting and curriculum targets.

What is involved?

Running through the curriculum, the Impact & Change Programme provides a number of YogaBugs, FootieBugs or DanceBugs sessions over the course of 30 weeks during the school year. These sessions combine sporting activities with stories through the use of imagination and themes, as well as incorporating mindfulness practices, such as breathing, visualisation and relaxation techniques. 

The Impact & Change Programme also includes:

Staff Training for the whole school

Parent Workshops

Certificates for children and staff

Staff Training for the whole school

Impact and Change Award for the school

Celebration Assembly

Detailed report on every child's progression

What are the benefits?

In schools across the UK, we are seeing results of up to a 40% improvements in social, emotional, physical and behavioural criteria. Schools have reported a positive impact in children’s :-

  • Confidence & Self-Esteem
  • Concentration & Listening Skills
  • Engagement during lessons
  • Social Skills
  • Overall Physical and Mental Wellbeing
  • Fitness and Coordination levels

We've had the YogaBugs programme in our school for the past 3 years now. The results for the children speak for themselves when you see the great improvements made with their physical literacy, hand writing skills and concentration. They love it!
