Add at least £12,000 to your school’s training budget

The new TrailBlazer group has now been set up to develop government funded training for SENCOs, Teachers, Teaching Assistants and School Nurses to become registered Play Therapists.  It is confirmed that 90% of the total cost (estimated at £12,000 over a two year period) will be provided for training at level 7 (Post Graduate) once the proposed scheme is fully approved.

At the recent inaugural meeting nearly 100 primary schools were represented.  Become a part of this Beacon group. There’s room for another 200 from any part of England, organised in clusters of 12 – 16 schools.

The training will meet:

  • The new Ofsted inspection requirements coming into force this September;
  • registration on the Professional Standard Authority’s Accredited Register of Play and Creative Arts Therapists;
  • the principles of the new Mental Health Charter, being put forward as a blueprint for the reform of the 1983 Mental Health Act

This is a marvellous opportunity to provide therapeutic support for your pupils with social, emotional, behaviour and mental health issues.  Much reduced waiting lists for CAHMS, better than just a Mental Health Lead, excellent career progression for one or two staff members.

2+2=5? Why financial literacy should be taught in schools

Money makes the world go round, and it’s at the centre of our day-to-day lives for a variety of reasons. A 2018 study found that three quarters of Britons were worried about their finances, and further research concluded that over half of UK adults are concerned that their mental health is suffering in relation to money worries. It’s really is a matter of education, as young adults often feel that they were not taught enough about money and budgeting during their years in education. So, what’s the current situation and how can we improve on teaching young people how to manage their finances? We take a look, with some help from Business Rescue Expert, company liquidation specialists.

The millennial challenge

Millennials have brought a host of gaps in the teaching of finance to the surface, and countless studies have concluded that when it comes to money, this generation haven’t been taught adequate lessons. Millennials’ spending patterns stand in stark contrast to their predecessors; they’re keen to splash out on experiences and don’t often take to the idea of big commitment purchases seriously — for example, houses. Millennial spending habits signify the disparity of their knowledge and attitude towards budgeting — research has found that 60% of these youngsters said they are willing to spend more than £3.11 on a single cup of coffee, while only 29% of baby boomers would splurge for caffeine. A lack of financial literacy in education has undoubtedly played a role in this, with many young people under the illusion that simply earning a lot of money means that you’ll never be in any debt, along with a general unwillingness when it comes to making sacrifices for the sake of budgeting. One survey found that 42% of teenagers said that they wanted their parents to talk more about finances, and a staggeringly low 32% said that they knew how credit card fees and interest worked. Teenage years are pivotal points for learning, so why is financial literacy being left out?

Revised curriculums

Finances are complex and teaching them can require a lot of technicality and practical examples in order to make any sense. Lessons in finance differ from core subjects like English and Science, as they provide life skills which, if not learned, will be detrimental as kids grow older and enter adult life. One UK primary school created its own bank, to combat ‘below average’ financial literacy learning. Despite financial literacy being introduced to the national curriculum in England in 2014, not everyone believes that school is the place for financial education. Some believe the duty should be on parents to teach their children the real value of money and how to approach it. It’s worth noting that in private schools, faith schools, and academies, it isn’t a compulsory part of the curriculum, so many youngsters would still miss out on these lessons. A lot of schools who do incorporate it into the school day compartmentalize it into general ‘citizenship’ lessons, but it’s arguable whether enough emphasis is placed on it here.

The benefits of teaching financial literacy

The areas of financial literacy currently covered under the national curriculum include savings and investments, pensions, mortgages, insurance, and financial products. It’s still a relatively recent introduction to schools, so not all teachers may feel confident in teaching it yet, due to the specialised, complex nature of the topics. There is also the matter of religious differences in the approach to and teaching of these finance lessons. Followers of the Islamic faith are prohibited from using any form of compound interest. This relates to things like conventional mortgages, student loans and car loans, all of which are commonplace in many other cultures.

For this reason, making financial literacy universal, understandable, and an essential part of learning can be difficult. Maths might seem like an obvious place to drop lessons of finance in amongst existing content, but debate is rife as to whether subjects like trigonometry are still deserving for a place on exam papers, when finance lessons could take their place and provide long-lasting life skills.

While there is undoubtedly an absence and lack of depth in financial literacy, these lessons could become more popular in the future. These skills will prove invaluable for youngsters as they progress through life, and they could eventually counteract the stereotype of a financially irresponsible or illiterate millennials.



What part of the school day do children in your school enjoy the most?

Whether you’ve asked the children that question or not, the chances are you can guess the most popular answers.  Play time, lunch break, games, the reading of a story, art…

But does anyone say “Assembly”?

If any children do give that as an answer they are probably going to be in a minority, and yet it ought to be possible to generate more enthusiasm for assemblies, since the assembly is an opportunity to do something utterly different from what happens in the rest of the day.

Indeed, there is no reason why the children should not look forward to each day’s assembly in order to find out what new and exciting event is going to happen next.

And there is of course a bonus here, because in such a scenario what we inevitably find is that one has everyone’s complete attention.

It was with this idea in mind that I began to collect ways of delivering Assemblies that did more than meet the statutory requirement.  Assemblies that become as riveting as the TV programme that children ensure they get home in time to watch each day.

But of course assemblies need more than originality, for they also need to meet the social and emotional needs of the children who attend them and offer a focus on the values that the school wishes to present to the children.

As a result of this thinking we have produced a set of over 350 assemblies which are instantly available, and fully scripted.  And we are still working on the project with new assemblies being added every month.

These assemblies are divided into 12 categories along with an index which allows you to choose your assembly by topic.   You can read a full example of one of our assemblies by following this link 

Additionally you can see the complete list of the 12 main categories and from there you can go into each category and see the details of all the assemblies on offer.

All the details are available at where you can also order online:

• a 12 month subscription (only £149)
• a 24 month subscription (only £142 per year)
• a 36 month subscription (only £135 per year)

Beyond the curriculum there are key texts that all schools should possess. But…

But the trouble is, of course, cost.

Yes, you might well agree that it would be a good idea to have a copy of the Tao Te Ching in the library, along with Plato’s Republic, The Wealth of Nations, Thus Spake Zarathustra, and The Holy Qur’an in the library, simply because some of your sixth form students might want to find out what such books, of which they have heard much, actually look like.

The trouble is the list doesn’t stop with those four titles. One could add The Rights of Man, The Divine Comedy, Hobbs’ Leviathan, or More’s Utopia. And indeed, this list could go on and on.

There are probably around 50 such absolute classic texts which the occasional sixth form student might want to have a look at, if for no other reason than just to see what all the fuss is about.

But given the fact that these books are by and large fairly thick volumes the cost could be…

Well, actually not nearly as much as you might imagine, because Wordsworth Editions have published a list of some 50 classic titles from across the world at just £2.99 each after deduction of our 25% educational discount with free delivery.

We have set out our list of some of the most influential books ever written, encompassing politics, economics, psychology, religion and much more on the “World Literature” page of our online catalogue.

And in case you are wondering about the quality of the books provided at such reasonable prices, we still have open the free sample of one of our classics offer – which includes not only no charge for the book but also no packing, postage or delivery charges either.  Just email or you can go straight to the website for full details of how to order.

I do hope you will find something of interest for yourself and your school on our website, but if not, please do get in touch.  Here are all details…


What is the single biggest problem that comes from the need to deliver a new assembly every day?  

During the course of their primary school lives, most children will take part in over 1000 assemblies.

Which provides a significant challenge.  How can one ensure that each day’s assembly has an immediate impact on each child, and then, additionally ensure that some of these assemblies have such an impact that they will be remembered for months (and sometimes even years) to come?

This is the issue that schools face every day through the school year, and it is the issue we looked to solve when we created Assembly Box.

The aim has been to create a series of 350 outstanding assemblies that really engage the pupils and which they will remember over time.

Each assembly is fully scripted and the collection comes with a complete index so that you can choose your assembly by topics as diverse as community and citizenship, saints’ days, black history, social and emotional stories and so on.

What’s more each assembly comes with its own supporting presentation material, and a set of ready-to-use key word cards.   The assemblies can be downloaded and printed out, thus making them immediately usable without further preparation.

You can see a complete list of the 12 main categories our assemblies are divided into here on our website, and from there you can go into each categories and see the details of all the assemblies on offer.  Just visit

Six imaginative productions from Fred Theatre, all designed to give your students a real advantage

Here at Fred Theatre we’re committed to bringing texts to life for students across the country. We’ve been working on this now for three years, and we’re very excited about developments for 2019-20.

Coming up are the following productions:






We’re extending the time we spend with you to two hours.

The longer sessions allow us to include an interactive element alongside the performance. During this time there will be a discussion of the text’s themes, characters, how we approached the production, and choices made in rehearsal. There will also be a chance for you and your students to ask questions.

Every student receives a printed programme.

Along with cast and crew details, programmes will include notes on the production and text, as well as supporting material for students to use in the interactive post-show session. Students will be able to keep these for use in class and as a valuable revision aid.

We’re introducing pre-visit information sheets.

We will provide you with copies of information sheets, for distribution to students ahead of our being with you. These will provide valuable information about the text and production and we’re sure your students will want to keep them with their class notes to use in revision. These sheets will help build a sense of anticipation ahead of the performance, encouraging students to value our visit to your school, and make the most of their opportunity to learn from it.

We stay true to the text.

Teachers tell us they really appreciate our commitment to the text and producing a faithful rendition of the original, just a little shorter! And, all we need to perform at your school is a space approximately 5m x 5m with room (of course) for the audience. We may be low on tech, but we pride ourselves on being high on quality of performance.

We employ six professional actors for each production. 

Six professional actors perform our GCSE text-based productions; we feel fewer than six compromises quality. All Fred Theatre staff attending your school are DBS checked, trained in child safeguarding and experienced in the idiosyncrasies of in-school performance and workshop delivery.

Booking is now open.

Right now is the best time to talk to us about bringing our popular productions to your school. Booking is open, and dates are being reserved for schools across the country. To ensure you have the pick of dates available, please contact us soon.

To discuss any aspect of a visit from Fred Theatre to your school, please feel free to contact me or Helen Warrilow, our tour administrator. You can call us on 01789 777612 or email:



We look forward to speaking with you soon, and bringing amazing live performance to your school next year.

Classroom chairs, manufactured in the UK with a FIVE year warranty and costing from less than £ 10 each (ex vat) …..  

At a time when there have been increases in the price of classroom chairs it’s nice to be able to report that it’s still possible to purchase classroom chairs from an established UK manufacturer at very competitive prices.

It’s true that there is a limited colour range and  just one seat height (430 mm) but at these prices, AND with a FIVE year warranty, it’s hard to ignore the benefits  of having extra seating  eg.  for exams,  fitting out temporary classrooms or just for use in emergencies.

The “Poplar” classroom chair is available in black or blue from just £ 8.98 ex vat (200+) (slightly more for smaller quantities). Quick delivery can usually be arranged, subject to stock availability.

Is there a simple way to encourage  your students to help keep your school or college free of litter …..?

This incident happened when I was doing playground break duty in a London school many years ago.  I was standing next to a group of boys when a couple of them threw some crisps and sweet wrappers on the floor.  If my memory serves me correctly I asked them if they lived in a rubbish tip and why couldn’t they just wait until they got to a litter bin before getting rid of their wrappers. They looked at me as if I’d just dropped in from another planet.  “But sir,” they said, “there’s people whose job it is to pick up rubbish.”

It made me wonder how they were brought up and why they didn’t seem bothered about turning their school playground into a dumping ground for sweet wrappers, drink cans and fast food boxes, etc.

So how can we encourage students to be a bit more responsible?

I’ve always thought that the more litter bins there are scattered around a school, (both indoors and outdoors), the more likely they are to be used. After all if a litter addict has only got to take two steps to a bin, rather than thirty, there’s a pretty good chance that he’ll take those two steps.  Which leads me to why I’m writing this email to you.

Having done a stint of 22 years secondary teaching in inner city London I’m now involved in supplying furniture (and litter bins!) to schools and colleges throughout the UK and I’d like to make you an offer which I hope will lead to a reduction in litter in your school.

Our litter bins are manufactured in the UK from durable polyethylene plastic and are suitable for internal or external use. Each bin has a rigid plastic liner to make it easy to dispose of litter when full.  The  large capacity round bin (volume 118 litres) measures 510 mm diameter x 960 mm high. The square bin (volume 45 litres) measures 375 x 375 mm and is 870 mm high.  Choose red, blue or green.

The square bins are £105 each while the round bins are £129 each….and here’s where we hope you’ll take advantage of our offer and at the same time encourage your students to use a litter bin rather than the floor to dispose of their wrappers and drink cans, etc.

When you order five or more bins (in a single order) we’ll give you an extra bin completely FREE….a saving of more than £100.  Simply email, phone or post your order to:

Imagine this scene on a typical school day.… 

Steve  Brown wakes up late, doesn’t even have time for a bowl of cereal, rushes out of the house, gets the bus with two seconds to spare and just about makes it to registration…..

and then he remembers that his school bag is still on the living room table.   It’s got his exercise books,  homework sheets,  pencil case,  pens, ruler, eraser   calculator etc……….

No homework, no pen, no ruler, no pencils, no sharpener, no eraser.

Not a good way to start the day.

The chances are that on a typical school day there’s probably quite a few students in the same boat as Steve,,,,wondering how they’re going to get through the day without the basics they need for most lessons.

The “Student Essentials set” can help in situations like this.  It’s designed to provide the basic equipment for most lessons and costs from just 85p + vat.

The “Student Essentials set”  contains  three quality ballpens (black ink), two full length HB pencils, 15 cm ruler, eraser and a pencil sharpener, all packed in a handy “exam friendly”  clear, PVC  wallet with a zip slider.

It’s a convenient way for students to get the equipment they need, whether in an emergency (like Steve Brown) or under more normal conditions.  Schools and colleges can buy these in bulk and resell to students  (or possibly even give them away now and again….)

What’s the simple and cost effective way to help maths lessons be more productive,  both for teachers and students…….? 

Every now and again I get to chat with  teachers and one of the topics that often crops up is why some students don’t  bring a pen, pencil, ruler, etc, to their lessons.  They tell me that this leads to wasted time and a measure of disruption, even before teaching has begun.

In an attempt to solve this problem there’s  a  product called the “Value Maths set ” which, as the name suggests, contains all the basics that students need for their maths lessons.

My mate Ed used to be a teacher ……….

Ed has been a teacher for more than thirty years,  working in several London boroughs. He started out as a supply teacher, then moved on to be a subject teacher, head of year and head of department.

Now and again he would recount some of the more “grisly” goings on in whichever  school he was working  at the time…..and it wasn’t only the students he got “naffed off” with…… (but that’s another story, as they say)

If there was one thing he felt strongly and got so angry about it was when students came to his lessons without the basics, i.e. they turned up without a pen, pencil, ruler, etc.

He was well read, an experienced teacher and planned his lessons carefully, so he regarded any delay in starting a lesson as a personal insult.  His view was “If I take the trouble to plan my lessons and make them relevant and interesting, then why the heck can’t my students bring a pen and pencil with them?”

Thankfully, a couple of years before he retired, he found out about the “Student Essentials” set.

“If I’d known about this product thirty years ago then my life as a teacher would have been much easier and my students would almost certainly have got a lot more benefit from my lessons.”

The “Student Essentials” set is all about providing students with the basics they need and cutting out wasted time at the beginning of lessons….result?  Improved productivity in both teaching and learning.

The “Student Essentials” set consists of three quality black ink ballpens, two full length HB pencils, an eraser, pencil sharpener and a 15 cm ruler, all packed in a clear “exam friendly” PVC wallet with a zip slider (size: 230 x 155 mm). It’s ideal to sell to your students (or maybe even give them away!) or use as prizes or incentives.  From only 85p each, ex vat, it’s a simple, yet cost effective way of helping both teachers and students be more productive.

The Cheap seats in Education report

Earlier this year Epson undertook some research to better understand how the use of AV Technology in classrooms could help to create a step change in ‘Teaching practices, inclusion, and improved learning outcomes for all.’

With the assistance and guidance from former teacher and founder of, one of the most popular education websites in the world – Ross McGill – who was recognised by The Sunday Times as ‘one of the 500 most influential people in Britain’, the research conducted with 300 Local Authority controlled, Academy and Independent schools, found that 66% of those surveyed claimed that not being able to see a screen fully could hamper a pupil’s learning experience and 76% felt that having a poor view of the screen was linked to pupils’ disengagement. 

The study offered a unique insight into the Education system within England and even surprised the experienced Ross, who commented that it appeared some students may be sitting in ‘cheap seats’. He observed that whilst the experience of teaching had a huge impact on the students learning, the positioning, size and how and where a teacher sits also impacted on the students’ outcome.

On the back of this compelling research, Epson made a pledge to assist Head Teachers and Governing bodies to understand whether they have any so called ‘cheap seats’ within their School and help ensure every student gets the learning experience they deserve by launching our Ambassador Schools Program to help create ‘The classroom of the future’.

To kickstart this program, Epson are offering 10 schools the opportunity to become Ambassador Schools, which entitles you to have 1 classroom fully kitted with the necessary equipment to have a classroom of the future. As a pilot member you will have the opportunity to share your education experience & knowledge with Epson and the wider education market and act as a reference site to demonstrate your achievements along with a number of other benefits.

Imagine 70 classic works of English Literature.

Then imagine quality editions at £2.50 each. Then imagine a 25% discount.

Of course you might be reserved about such an offer because your notion of classic works might not be the same as ours.

So just in case you are concerned, we have set out our list of classic works from Vanity Fair to Emma, from The Time Machine to the poems of William Blake, from – well you can imagine the rest.  The list is rather comprehensive on our website, and we hope that will reassure you.

But then again you might wonder about the quality of the books provided at such reasonable prices, which is why we are always happy to send you a free sample.

And here I’d assure you that free really does mean free.  Not £0 plus £4.95 postage.  No, it is free.  Just email

Or maybe you might feel that the books you require are not exactly classics – in which case just go to our home page and select the type of books you want to explore.

Now at this point I am hopeful that the options above will answer all your thoughts about how there can be, in the UK today, a publisher who can offer books which are said to be of the highest quality at such low prices.

But just in case not, here’s something else.

This year we introduced a new series of books that make wonderful prizes and rewards to be handed out on speech day and other special occasions.

These volumes are hardbacks, cloth-bound, with matching coloured end papers, embossed gold and colour blocking to enhance their beautiful, bespoke cover illustrations.  And best of all they are just £6.99.  The list of these titles is here.

I do hope you will find something of interest for you and your school on our website, but if not please do get in touch.  Here are all details…

What is the best reaction you can have to the daily assembly?

Imagine a child going home after school and volunteering to his/her parents the story of what happened during the day (rather than waiting to be asked, and then offering the shortest of answers).

And imagine further that what the child chooses to talk about is the school assembly, with parents also bringing up the subject when they attend a parents evening, talking to you about how certain assemblies have really made an impact on their child.

Of course, you may well find this happens from time to time, with the parents spontaneously mentioning assemblies, but even if so you will know that there is a constant pressure to find more and more assemblies that grab attention and give children insights into the moral, personal, and social world in which they live.

It was to provide such assemblies that my colleagues and I began to contemplate what made certain assemblies have a really strong influence on the children we teach.

We knew of course that we needed to create assemblies that were original, and which also met the social and emotional needs of the children who attend them and offer a focus on the values that the school wishes to present to the children.

As a result we have produced a set of over 350 assemblies with each one categorised and indexed, each of which is instantly available and fully scripted.

You can read a full example of one of our assemblies by following this link.  Additionally you can see the complete list of the categories and from there you can go into each category and see the details of all the assemblies on offer.

All the details are available at where you can also order online:

  • a 12 month subscription (only £149)
  • a 24 month subscription (only £142 per year)
  • a 36 month subscription (only £135 per year)
