Teachers

We believe that mental health and wellbeing conversations should be part of the fabric of everyday school life.

We put the emotional health of children and young people at the heart of every educational setting with our whole school approaches and one to one resources

Using iSpace Wellbeing allows teachers to know they are using the “gold standard” in evidence-based approaches to mental health and wellbeing, whilst enabling them to focus on what they do best: supporting children to learn, progress and flourish.

The PSHE timetable was the natural birthplace of the iSpace Wellbeing curriculums; to be delivered as part of structured and continuous learning throughout the school year. The iSpace Wellbeing curriculums reduce teacher workload, maximise pupil impact and fulfil the government requirements for the delivery of an RSHE curriculum. The use of the curriculums delivers an emotional education to children and young people whilst supporting and improving the mental wellbeing of teaching staff. The implementation of the iSpace Wellbeing curriculums also improve parent / carer engagement and confidence in the school’s ability to understand and support the emotional wellbeing of their children.

iSpace

Ages 3 – 11

The start stories (for children aged 3-7) will be used as a teaching lesson and an active teaching tool for teachers to explore topics including ‘who am I’ and ‘who can I be’, sharing and friendship, anti-bullying, physical and emotional health, the environment and diversity in our community.
The start stories introduce the children to iSpace characters such as Dunican and Niam (introducing the phrases “I can” and “I am”), who live in a Wellbeing Galaxy on the Planet Wellbeing and who learn about their own and other’s thoughts, behaviours and feelings.
As the curriculum progresses, for children aged 7-11, the iSpace characters grow and ‘travel’ across the Wellbeing Galaxy consisting of 10 wellbeing themed planets. Throughout their adventures they will be collecting ‘backpack’ tools and other resources to support their development of healthy relationships, character, emotional intelligence, resilience, life-skills and wellbeing.
Each lesson for the children, teaches them wellbeing tools, techniques and who and how to ask for help. Attention training activities and active learning are further built upon during this stage.
Conversations are supported by the iSpace Wellbeing toolkit which includes galaxy map, manual and card deck.

The iSpace curriculum consists of a comprehensive scheme of work, supporting you in meeting your PSHE and RSHE requirements including:

  • Over 100 lesson plans and slides with supporting worksheets and activities
