I have nothing but excellent things to say about our day with OpenView. The children are STILL buzzing about it and they all enjoyed the day – One even announced that it was the ‘Best show ever’.
The teachers reported that the workshops were brilliant and were all incredibly impressed by your knowledge and skills as well as your ability to manage the behaviour of the children. The materials provided for the prior session and the follow-up are great and completely appropriate. The parents and carers who came to the session have been full of praise as well.
Thank you again. I have already been recommending you to my friends in other schools.
Ms McIntosh, Assistant Headteacher KS2, Bonneville Primary School, Lambeth.
‘Can we all say a big thank you for an amazing assembly and workshops. The children were totally hooked. So much fun to get an important message across! Thank you and hope to work with you again in the future.’
Ms Schleising, John Hampden Primary School, Thame.
‘Perfect combination of humour and sensitivity. The message is so simple but it was delivered in such an interactive and effective way. The puppets and our facilitator were fantastic at engaging the children. They had complete control over the whole school.
‘I thought the workshops were perfect, they reiterated the previous message from the show but also gave children the skills to deal with difficult situations.’
Ms Cracknell, Deputy Head, Hollybush Primary School, Hartford.
'Thank you so much for the informative day. The children have really learnt a lot as the workshops were really age appropriate. It was amazing to ask them about bullying and the ways to overcome it and hear their clear understanding of what to do.
From Reception to Year 6 the word UPSTANDER is being used! The Year 6 class presented a short talk and dramatisation to the whole school and parents on the Friday. Parents commented on the mature way that this was done. Thank you so much once again.'
St.Vincent’s Catholic Primary School, Essex.
'Both the show and the workshops were amazing. Very appropriate for each year group and the children got so much from it.'
Ashford St. Mary’s Primary School
'The children were all very engaged and the teachers loved the facilitator's enthusiasm.
The workshops were also very positive and engaging - they gave our kids a chance to really empathise with Phillip and explore the feeling and emotions that he was going through. It was great to see them get a chance to act it out.
The whole day was a fantastic way to reinforce all the messages and lessons that we had previously learnt during anti-bullying week.
The words respect and upstander are now firmly part of our children's vocabulary so thank you.'

We particularly liked how you were able to make it all relevant for our children and for really helping to clarify the difference between bullying and conflict.
Also, the practical techniques the children were taught – the use of their voices and the body language was really effective.
