Services for Education are delighted to be partnering with Commando Joe’s to help bring their highly successful and effective programme to primary schools in Birmingham and the West Midlands.
Commando Joe’s was formed in 2009 and since then has worked with over 1000 schools across the country building to build the resilience of pupils through programmes of life skills and character education. A 2015 evaluation report by Swansea University found that the Commando Joe’s intervention as a whole-school strategy enhanced educational and behavioural outcomes.
To enable more schools to benefit from the CJ approaches, a school-led package has been introduced providing a toolkit to support and promote SMSC , British values, health and wellbeing, teamwork and leadership, PSHE and even holiday clubs.
The goal is to engage even the most reluctant learners, so all of the packages include a Top Secret box packed with cross-curricular resources, amazing video hooks for every module, homework sheets and curriculum overviews for teachers and other staff to deliver as part of school curriculum or in lunchtime/after-school clubs, and an innovative online pupil tracker to help pupils mark and celebrate their achievements.
For those schools which sign up to the Essential or Team packages, an Elite Commando will visit your school to train and support staff to effectively implement the programme to best suit you needs.
Leaving no child left behind, Commando Joe inspires pupils to rise to the challenge, strive for excellence and develop resilience, empathy and passion for learning.
