The content and ideas are excellent, and are exactly what we want to be doing with our children. We really believe in helping children develop their meta-cognition from a young age and the Strengths System definitely helps us do that."
I found that the Strengths Toolbox opened up an opportunity for a student of mine and his mum to have a conversation about his strengths that they had never had before. We would love to carry on using this."
One parent was amazed at how much her son, who had recently been struggling with schoolwork, was engaging with and developing from the Toolbox. He didn’t normally work well independently so she was really proud to see him doing so with the Toolbox."
It fits with our curriculum perfectly, and I think it really pins down the ‘softer’ skills, but more importantly explains to pupils why they are important skills to develop."
