You Are Awesome

The sessions have been designed to support pupils either side of the KS2-KS3 transition in their development of Growth Mindset. With two parallel courses adapted for students in Years 5/6 and Years 7/8, teachers gain full access to:

a) Teacher Manual

b) Eight sessions – one per chapter, which include: lesson plan, PowerPoint, worksheet, reflective clip from Matthew Syed

c) Two assemblies (one to introduce the course; one to conclude the course)

d) Pre and post self-assessments

To use the resources, pupils will need to read YOU ARE AWESOME (either in class or at home). Through the sessions, they will be exposed to the importance of learning from their failures, shown how success is entirely dependent on hard work and persistent determination and challenged to employ resilience in the face of obstacles on their educational journey.

Dare to Be You

Dare To Be You Resources


The PiXL Change Makers project explores how students can be the creators of their own change and, as a result, change the world in which they live. Topics covered include embracing difference, silencing ‘Kid Doubt’, the importance of kindness and how to choose our own path.

The resources include:

a) Guidance for teachers

b) Twelve interactive student sessions, featuring videos from Matthew Syed and other special guests, accompanied by print and digital workbooks

c) Guidance for parents

Pupils do not need to read DARE TO BE YOU to use the resources but doing so will allow fuller and deeper understanding of the issues.

The resources are primarily aimed at KS2 pupils, but have also been adapted for KS4 students. These Post-16 Student Sessions are available to download from the student page.
