Primary education resource testimonials

Hilary Bills, Past President, National Union of Teachers

“This resource is a must for all year 5 and 6 teachers. Equal Choices, Equal Chances is a free educational resource designed to make young people think about their life choices and challenge them to think about their futures. Teachers will welcome the chance to select activities to suit the needs of their pupils, who in turn, will enjoy the variety of activities.”

Chris Henley, Assistant to the Head, South Wigston High School

“May I start by saying what an incredibly exciting project this is, and how impressed I am by what I am seeing! Really professional, well aimed and pitched at the appropriate level to make a real impact. Congratulations to all concerned and it is a privilege to be part of!”

Julie Gibbings, Curriculum and Publications Manager, The Citizenship Foundation

“The Equal Choices, Equal Chances resources are relevant, engaging and innovative. They are designed so that busy teachers can use them easily with little adaptation, even if they are non-specialists. The range of activities will fit the needs of children from all types of backgrounds.”

Ron Naylor, Head Teacher, Forefield Junior School

“This is an excellent toolkit that meets the objectives so well! Congratulations on a wonderful initiative.”

Chris Laker, Class Teacher, Frant Primary School

“I think the programme of study and the resources are fantastic. I personally feel they will really ignite children's thoughts about their lives ahead and where they may end up in the world of work. I think there is an excellent balance to the programme and it combats stereotypical views in a thought-provoking way.

The activities come across as being suitably targeted/differentiated for years 5 and 6 with many areas of discussion. Teachers can differentiate further if they need to, especially if they have children with individual needs. This programme fits well into the PSHE scheme as we have a number of elements which could incorporate this material.“

Claire Trewehla, Class Teacher, Torriano Junior School

“The resources were great, children really enjoyed the activities and I’m sure they will still be talking about them next week! If all classes used these resources it would lead to an improvement in behaviour amongst the whole school.”
