Are you worried about your child returning to school in September?

At Achievement for All we have designed Core Strength - a programme that supports families to provide meaningful and high impact activities for children and young people.

Core Strength is a mental toolkit to engage children and young people in learning through summer activity to rebuild confidence following Covid-19 lockdown, as described by a six-year-old in this video (click the image below to play):

How does Core Strength support parents?
  • A framework that builds the confidence and ability to learn
  • A framework that is accessible, easy to understand and apply in the home
  • A tool that acknowledges and celebrates learning wherever and however it takes place
  • Easily understood and internalised by children and young people of all ages and all abilities
  • An approach that will help children and young people to become re-motivated and learning ready again for formal schooling in September

Achievement for All, a not-for-profit charity, supports families to provide meaningful and high impact activities for children and young people to rebuild their confidence and ability to learn.
