‘OpenView Education provided a fantastic workshop for our Year 7s, focusing on internet safety and phone usage. The facilitator was engaging and fun, which enthused our pupils to get involved. We have used this company multiple times and feel they deliver an outstanding workshop for young people. They diligently approached the new Covid-19 measures and the adapted workshop enabled everyone to feel safe and comfortable. We would highly recommend them to other educational instuitions.’  
Queens College London

Ms D'Arcy, Director of the School

The show covered a broad range of messages in an engaging way – loved the combination of puppets, video and interactive elements, the workshops were also excellent – lively, engaging, fun and interactive; also very age-appropriate and fully up to date with the latest online trends. The lesson plans were excellent – the use of real-life examples and practical tips made it especially relevant in bringing e-safety to life.

Rowan Preparatory School.

Ms. Blair, Year 5 & 6 Phase Leader

‘The performance was great and very interactive. The pre teaching resources, videos and lesson plans were really engaging for the children. They remembered the key message about change starting with us. The workshops really engaged the children and they loved acting out different scenarios.

We had such a great facilitator for the day! They put on a great show and delivered a brilliant performance and workshops, which left the children buzzing! The whole day ran really smoothly, our facilitator was very organised and knew exactly what they were doing! Thanks for making it so easy! Behaviour management was excellent!! All children were really engaged and loved it!’

St Mary’s Primary School, Brighton

‘OpenView Education are true to their mission – students at Middlesex University who attended the sessions bore testimony to OpenView’s claim – they truly do “equip students with the self-confidence and knowledge they need to stay safe and to live successful, happy lives. 

Working with OpenView has been fun, productive and impactful.  They are highly professional in approach, and have great understanding of how best to engage students in exploratory and learning activities.’

Middlesex University, London.

Ms. Crabb, Head of Student Support and Wellbeing

Our facilitator was absolutely brilliant! I was so impressed with the way in which they engaged the whole Prep School in the show, then adapted their tone and manner to engage with Year 5 & 6 during workshops and finishing with an extremely professional Parents workshop!’

Notre Dame Prep School, Greenwich

‘I would really like to stress how excellent our facilitator was. They had a professional, informative and sensitive manner with the parents whilst leading the parent talk.  The individual workshops with our students were excellent and pitched perfectly to each age group. Finally I would like to commend OpenView Education on their ability to engage over 250 students in an eSafety assembly. The use of drama and enthusiasm meant that the children really learnt from the assembly, this will  safeguard the children if faced with an eSafety problem.’

Shaftesbury Park Primary School

Ms. McKenzie-Arday, Computing Lead

‘A massive thank you from all of us at Bancroft’s Prep for an absolutely wonderful day on Friday. The assembly was entertaining whilst thought provoking and perfectly pitched! The workshops were brilliant. We can’t wait to welcome you back to our school again.’

Bancroft’s Prep School, Woodford Green

‘The facilitators had great knowledge and expertise, very up-to-date information, and were adaptable to our school needs. They had brilliant teaching strategies to engage children in listening/active learning/discussion.

Positive and warm with the children, managed children well, presented with knowledge to parents. Brilliant!
It was all brilliant and staff, pupils and parents were all impressed and said how beneficial the sessions were – they really enjoyed the sessions and all learnt so much.

Thank you for your flexibility, positivity and expertise. It was an excellent day and I’m sure we’ll rebook the show and/or workshops again in the future.’

Manchester High School for Girls, Manchester

‘Perfect combination of humour and sensitivity. The message is so simple but it was delivered in such an interactive and effective way. The puppets and our facilitator were fantastic at engaging the children. They had complete control over the whole school.

‘I thought the workshops were perfect, they reiterated the previous message from the show but also gave children the skills to deal with difficult situations.’

Hollybush Primary School, Hartford

Ms Cracknell, Deputy Head

I have nothing but excellent things to say about our day with OpenView.  The children are STILL buzzing about it and they all enjoyed the day – One even announced that it was the ‘Best show ever’.

The teachers reported that the workshops were brilliant and were all incredibly impressed by your knowledge and skills as well as your ability to manage the behaviour of the children.  The materials provided for the prior session and the follow-up are great and completely appropriate.  The parents and carers who came to the session have been full of praise as well.

Thank you again.  I have already been recommending you to my friends in other schools.

Bonneville Primary School, Lambeth

Ms McIntosh, Assistant Headteacher KS2.

‘The show was excellent at not only defining what bullying is, but also provided children with tools and strategies to deal with bullying (and any other unwanted behaviours) really well. It also highlighted online bullying which is high on the agenda for safeguarding youngsters nowadays.

It was excellent at engaging because it was interactive and fast paced. The show reinforced what we have been teaching children which is always good. The workshops were appropriately pitched and children were engaged throughout. Our facilitator was enthusiastic, positive and passionate about something which is very important to us as a school too. The show and workshops reinforced the need for us to take action and not allow bullying to happen to us or others.  Your passion and enthusiasm made it even better. Thank you.’

Hillcross Primary School, Morden

‘Our facilitator was absolutely bursting with energy which engaged all the pupils from our youngest in Reception to Year 6 at the very top of the school. The show was fast paced and entertaining while having a very strong and clear message. The children felt involved and enjoyed coming up to the front to help out. The workshops then built on what they had learnt in the show which consolidated the children’s understanding and involved a range of activities like discussion, freeze-frames and acting. This once again appealed to all ages and all abilities.’

Ravenscourt Park Prep School, Hammersmith

‘I just wanted to say a huge thanks for the excellent workshop today. It was very well-pitched and received. I think the pupils will really have taken on board the useful learning.’

Queens College, London.

‘Children were all engaged and it was evident they learnt something. Good links to real life situations. The children had opportunity to practice through role-play. Thank you very much, the children really enjoyed themselves.’

St. Edwards Catholic Primary School, Marylebone

‘Thank you very much! You delivered really fun and exciting shows and the children all benefited from the workshops too. You had the sparkle and energy required to create a great impact which will last in their memories.’

Kew Green Prep School, Richmond

‘The session was really engaging and the children responded really well – the ‘in role’ acting was very immersive.
The most valuable part of the session was the realistic views of what the children use on the internet and giving them guidelines. I think the value was in not saying ‘Don’t use it’, but practically how to use it.’

Water Leys Community Primary School, Leicester

‘The workshops were a great success. It was absolutely fantastic and all children and staff have provided excellent feedback. I will highly recommend your company to other local schools.’

St. Augustine’s Primary School, Hoddeson.

‘Very clear communication with pupils and high expectations of behaviour. Very proactive for the pupils – all encouraged to contribute to the session.’

Beaudesert Park Prep School, Stroud

‘We thought that the whole day was fantastic! The children were thoroughly engaged and excited by ‘The Ultimate E-Safety Show’, and the staff were very impressed by the facilitator’s enthusiasm and the way that they conveyed such important messages in a fun and effective way.

The workshops were well tailored to the different age groups and explored Internet Safety with current, relevant scenarios. One of the parents that attended the after school workshop said how informative they found it.’

Chesterton C of E Primary School, Bicester

‘It was very interactive and was enjoyable for all age groups. The story was so well played it really opened up the children’s eyes.

Openview Education have delivered a number of amazing, innovative workshops in our school. The children were totally engaged throughout and thoroughly enjoyed the sessions.
The facilitators are professional, friendly and great with the children. They deliver sensitive subjects in an informative and entertaining manor for both pupils and staff.
We have rebooked and would definitely recommend this company.

Bishop Winnington-Ingram Primary School, Ruislip

‘The children were all very engaged and the teachers loved the facilitator’s enthusiasm. The workshops were also very positive and engaging – they gave our kids a chance to really empathise with Phillip and explore the feeling and emotions that he was going through. It was great to see them get a chance to act it out. The whole day was a fantastic way to reinforce all the messages and lessons that we had previously learnt during anti-bullying week. The words respect and upstander are now firmly part of our children’s vocabulary so thank you.’

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School, London

‘Excellent delivery of the workshop – very engaging for Year 6, they learnt more than from a normal e-safety lesson.’
