What People Say

“Following initial discussions we were able to devise a programme of work with Steps 8 on a bespoke basis. The 12 week period looked at supporting 12 children with self-esteem and confidence issues. This proved extremely successful with marked improvements in pupil engagement and lesson participation. Steps 8’s ability to engage pupils in a way that is non-threatening and enjoyable enabled all those who were involved to make rapid and sustainable progress towards being more confident and less fearful pupils.”
