Additional Info

We routinely support primary and secondary schools to implement practical steps that address peer to peer bullying? For Kidz Aware, education is the key to addressing the challenges that disabled young people and their families face. We run a number of programmes for schools that allow children and young people to explore the realities of disability, bullying and racism.

Our programmes are founded on the Award WinningPacer Centre in Minnesota, America. They support schools to meet statutory legislation requirements, demonstrating the school’s commitment to delivering an outstanding approach to the behaviour and safety of pupils at the school, asset out in Ofsted’s School Inspection Handbook.

The “Count Me In” programme is aimed at educating children from the age of 2-18 about issues affecting children with disabilities. Delivered differently to Key Stage 1-4, this overarching programme helps schools and pupils ensure that disabled children are not excluded from life experiences. Count Me In helps pupils of all ages explore our human nature responses to disability, including discomfort, embarrassment and lack of understanding about disabilities and health conditions.

Our “Lets Prevent Bullying” puppet programme is aimed at educating primary children about the issues affecting children with or without disabilities. Delivered in a large scale puppet medium, this workshop programme is tailored to younger children at Key Stage 1 and/or Key Stage 2.

Our “Accepting Difference” Programme is targeted at educating older children aged 10-18 and provides the opportunity for young people to explore a more complex range of issues related to disability, discrimination and racism.
