"It’s crucial, now more than ever to consider how schools and colleges are developing both the academic and the wellbeing of every young person.

At City Academy Norwich we place a core emphasis on every child having the same opportunity in life. Being mentally, fit, happy, energised and productive are key attributes that everyone can benefit from having."

Paul C, Headteacher, City Academy Norwich

"Our work with Future Action and the 'RISE Up' Early Intervention Programme has allowed us to ensure we consider a proactive approach to these areas, working with all our young people to become the very best versions of themselves and achieve future successes.

The RISE Up programme is a course that we would wholeheartedly recommend to colleagues who are looking to introduce a sustainable early intervention mental wellbeing programme to their school.

The training is user friendly and the online resources can be used continually to aid planning of lessons.  Our young people and staff have really benefitted from implementing the programme at Sprowston." 

Jonathan R, 2nd in PE, Sprowston Community Academy.

"'The 'RISE Up' Early Intervention Programme is a course that we would definitely recommend to other PE departments who are looking to upskill in their delivery of teaching the knowledge needed for young people to recognise and develop strategies for their own mental wellbeing.

The course tutor Neil Moggan, is passionate, extremely knowledgeable, and keen to engage with staff to develop this brilliant opportunity for all students. The training is user friendly and with the online resources can be used continually to aid planning of lessons."
