All students will receive an official Anti Bullying Awareness Certificate.
Each student will have participated in a welcome assembly and options for interactive workshop featuring role play, demonstrations plus your choice of workshop - in the past schools have chosen to focus on mindfulness, group craft projects, drama and dance.
At ReachOut we are usually fully booked way in advance for Anti Bullying Week so if you are hoping to book us we advise you get in touch sooner rather than later.
Anti Bullying workshops begin at £195 with full quotes created based on your settings needs.
Using our story series 'The Magic Easel' join Gem and Saskia as they explain what it's like to go through the process of creating a story and then seeing it in full colour print, with story telling, drama, art and story boarding, by the end of the session children will have created their own tale and have many more spin off ideas to continue working on long after we have finished the workshop. With a digital certificate provided for you to celebrate the hard work of those attending.
Our Author Illustrator workshops begin at £150 and can be tailored to all age groups, whilst the stories we have written are suited to those in KS1, we can take students on a journey of creativity to create their own.

What do our schools think?
"ReachOut Arts came into our school and delivered two workshops for our Key Stage 3 pupils for World Book Day. The children (and staff) loved the sessions! We were in consultation with Gem and Saskia prior to the event and they ensured that the sessions met the needs of the our pupils (we are a special needs school) and were perfectly pitched and delivered. Thank you both for such a stimulating and worthwhile afternoon!"
"Gem & Saskia led a Matilda themed workshop for our year 3 and 4 classes! The children haven't stopped talking about it and the staff said how fabulous they were. ALL of the children got involved. We can't wait to have them back in soon for another workshop. Thank You so much"
St Patricks Primary
" I just want to say a massive Thank You to yourself and your team. It has been a fantastic day and everyone has enjoyed themselves at the Viking Workshop. Steve & Milly were brilliant. I only wish we had longer to soak up all their knowledge! Thank You again and I will definitely be recommending your team/programme to other teachers.'
"A huge thank you to Millie and Steve
for a very engaging and interactive workshop about the Great Fire of London! Year 2 really got into character to help re-tell the story"
St Patricks Primary
"Class 1 and 2 had a great morning at the workshop. The children were thoroughly engaged throughout because it was interactive, exciting, and informative. The children listened to the story “The Magic Easel – On the Beach”
There were opportunities for drama, illustrations and most of all lots of fun! The children were amazed by Saskia drawing invented characters and Gem was enchanting and lively.
We would highly recommend this affordable action-packed workshop!
I have sent recommendations to other local schools too."

St Peters Primary

'You were amazing and the children loved having Vikings in their class. As soon as the school day was over, I went round saying how fantastic it was and how I felt it was much better than going on a visit'
"We really enjoyed your visit and the children thoroughly enjoyed it too, particularly the coin making, weapons and dressing up. Steve and Emily did a super job."
" Many Thanks for your visit here. Gem & Saskia, you are both so engaging and the children learnt a lot from your anti - bullying assemblies. It was so lovely to see the children have fun and enjoy an educational show , we'e not been able to provide that for such a long time with Covid."
