Our Suggestions for a Screen-Free Summer

Having story time at home each day and making it a regular habit is one of the best things you can do for your child if they are in EYFS or Key Stage 1. It helps cultivate active listening, gives them a head start on language skills, reduces screen time and makes them much more likely to pick up the habit of reading.

Our Partnerships

Our school partnerships allow pupils to interact with other children from around the world and learn how we can address environmental, social, or economic challenges together.


A partnership that connects more than 28,000 students worldwide with a clear goal: to prepare the next generations to face environmental challenges.
