Excellence Everyday

PATHS Programme - Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies

We are delighted to be implementing the PATHS Programme as part of our school development this year.  We believe this programme will further enhance the Kagan philosophy we have embedded at Ashurst, in terms of developing resilience, independence and the ability to work collaboratively with others.


The PATHS® Programme for Schools (UK Version) is designed to facilitate the development of self-control, emotional awareness and interpersonal problem-solving skills.  Ashurst staff will all be trained in delivering PATHS, ensuring a consistent approach to delivery in supporting our children with their mental health and well-being.  Please use the link below to find out more information about what the programme will offer.
