Working with and from existing good practice…
Eagle House School, Berkshire
‘Working with Antonia gave the school a dedicated time to focus on what the 'pupils' really feel. It is very easy to assume that things are being taught well and that all the necessary structures are in place to support their wellbeing. However, after hearing the pupils' input we can ensure that the necessary tweaks and changes are made to help support the children as best we can.’

‘We were delighted to be chosen as a pilot school for this wellbeing project and found the results very helpful. Pupils responded well when Antonia led discussions of the findings and together they made many helpful suggestions that have led to us making significant, but easily implemented changes, to our practices, which will benefit current Year 7 and those to come.
The surveys were simple to administer, with little disruption to the school day and the results easy to understand.’

‘During the academic year 2017 to 2018, we worked with Antonia Cox to help better understand the well-being of our pupils. We used a survey created by Antonia, which asked the children about school life. The questions covered a range of areas including playtimes, emotions, membership, pupil voice and more. As a result, of this questioning, we were able to better understand the children and make whole school changes which would bring about positive change. We would like to thank Antonia for her hard work and dedication throughout the pilot. I’m certain other schools would find this project hugely valuable in supporting the wellbeing of pupils.’

‘We feel very privileged to have been chosen for Antonia Cox’s pilot project. Our school is passionate about our children’s well-being and Antonia helped us to focus on what we were doing well and what improvements could be made to better support our children. With the Government lead focus on the mental health and well-being in schools it was the perfect input for us and our children.
Antonia was so easy and efficient to work with and the changes suggested easy to implement. The impact of her suggestions are already having a positive impact on our students for which we are truly grateful for.’
