Our mission is to raise healthier, happier and smarter children. We get the most vulnerable children to the starting line, so they can make the most of their education. Our work brings together mentoring, health and wellbeing, physical activity and classroom support. Our foundation is a unique, holistic vision of children’s health and wellbeing, which broadly falls into these areas:

There has been no negative feedback from my son, no "this is boring" or "I don't want to go", so whatever you're doing it's working well.
