About Us

What Drives Us?

Our approach gives children a voice. Equipping children to navigate their everyday lives by encouraging them to grow in awareness of themselves and others, develop knowledge, skills and strategies to navigate the world around them and to maximise opportunities to participate and engage and make a positive difference.

Our Approach


Releasing a child's voice improves social outcomes, furthering societies knowledge of the way children experience their everyday lives - allowing adults, in consultation with children, to set policies and create practices that are relevant, meaningful and ultimately make a positive difference.

Testimonials from Schools

What it means for the children, is that they now have the ability to apply and even synthesise ways of implementing the learning attributes (metacognitive tools) in all facets of their learning and socialisation.

Ducan Robers, Head of Little Green

Equipping kids have breathed new life into our school. We are on the journey for giving them the skills to navigate life, not a text book. The bespoke, knowledgeable, research-based approach of Equipping Kids allows us to do this; to find solutions but most importantly all be ourselves. There is no 'lunchbox' of tricks, just knowledgeable, passionate professionals who want to maximize the opportunities for every child to make a difference.

Philip Grey, Principal, Hertfordshire

The impact has transformed the adults in school to see themselves as partners in learning rather than learning that is something that is done to children

Hannah Trickett, Head, Maple Cross

The methods used by equipping kids to gather tangible qualitative data and make visible the learning process have enabled staff and governors to value priorities that are 'hard to evidence' and as a result maintain sustained focus on longer term changes to ethos and culture in the school, such as a focus on developing growth mindsets and developing pupils as learners.

Simon King, Head, Dundale
