Take Five at School

Partnership Application: Each Amazing Breath CIC

Project Outline

Each Amazing Breath CIC developed Take Five at School in Worksop in collaboration with a range of local partner public and voluntary sector organisations, and residents from Manton. Take Five are the Universal Services, practices and techniques that have proven successful at building resilience, resourcefulness and greater capacity in young people and adults alike. Take Five also serves to prevent destructive behaviour and poor decision-making at all stages of life. Following securing Home Office Funding (via Preventing Demand), a national pilot was delivered between October 2014 – October 2015, in four schools: Worksop Priory CE primary School, Sparken Hill Academy, Outwood Academy Portland and Outwood Academy Valley.

The Partnership’s funding, along with a grant from Nottinghamshire County Council has allowed a further four schools to embrace Take Five at School:

  • St. Luke’s Primary school: Whole School approach Foundation – Year 6
  • Redlands Primary: Initially 2 x Year 3 classes and 2 x Year 5 classes.
  • Prospect Hill Juniors: Initially 2 x Year 3 classes, plus targeted work with a number of specific pupils
  • Sir Edmund Hillary Primary School: Initially a Year 3 class

Project Outcomes

All four schools to deliver Take Five at least once a day during the spring term.
