RESTORE Transitions at Ryelands Primary School

RESTORE Transitions at Ryelands Primary and Nursery School was a twelve-week participatory programme from Lancashire Youth Challenge designed to enable, empower, and inspire young people to enhance their emotional wellbeing and build their interpersonal skills, social interaction skills, confidence, and self-efficacy. 

The programme was facilitated by industry professionals including experienced PT instructors, mental health practitioners, creative artists, outdoor learning experts and youth support workers.

Each session focussed on a particular emotional and behavioural principle such as ‘Feel the Fear’, ‘No wrong feelings’ or ‘Kindness is the Cure’ from which all the activities, events and conversations referred. These principles were the starting point to explore behaviours, emotional triggers, empathetic reasoning and understanding. 

As part of the project, the young people created a wellbeing journal, which you can download here.

The RESTORE Transitions project has been funded by the TASS Inclusion HUB (Lancashire County Council) and developed in partnership with Ryelands Primary and Nursery School.
