Testimonials

Can I say on behalf of the Academy what a fantastic day it was. The workshops were relevant and engaging and the facilitators were outstanding. A particular mention to Daren as many students mentioned him personally on their feedback sheets, Our students received information that will help keep them safe and aware in the futures. The feedback received highlights this. Thank you so much and we would love to have you back again.” Neil Harrington, Safegaurding Lead and Inclusion - Stationers Crown Woods.

Please pass on our gratitude to Rachel and Andre that were super professional today and really got the message across to our Year 7’s.” Lynn Edwards - Harris Morden.

Just wanted to say a huge thank for everything – the feedback was really positive with 77% of students who attended saying it was really good. Would love to get you back in for next academic year of 2020-21 and make an even bigger impact to the student wellbeing!Simon Wright, Oaklands College, St Albans, Herts. 

Everything went very well this morning. Many thanks to Guy for coming to Laureate to deliver this important message.” Philippa Shaw, Laurete Academy.

I just wanted to email you to say how fantastic the facilitators were today. They were extremely engaging, took no nonsense from students and most importantly got the message across to all students about the severity of gangs and violence. It was so pleasing to see students not wanting to go out to lunch and instead talk in more detail about questions they had surrounding the session! A few other heads of year are also interested, do you have any other available dates for other year groups as we would love to have them back? Thanks once again and please pass on my thanks and our thanks as a year group for such a great workshop.” Louis Demacque, Friern, Barnet. 

Peta was amazing! She delivered so well. She had an almost instant rapport with the students. Some great conversations and she went with the flow of their questions. She stamped out the silly comments quickly, putting them back in their place and some great revelations by the kids. I think it was 100% worth the 2 hours.” Catherine Surtees, Redbourne, Beds. 

The sessions you facilitated for DLD worked really well with the young people. Please pass on our thanks to the external presentors. The initial feedback is extremely positive. I look forward to more of these type of sessions in the summer DLD.” Katy Episcopo, DLD Southwark. 

As usual, your facilitators were amazing. Students loved the sessions and have been really positive about the content delivered. Thank you and your team.” Linda Jackson, Tolworth Junior school.

Just to let you know that Andre was brilliant yesterday and the children really learnt a lot.” Linda Jackson, Tolworth Junior School.

Thank you so much for the session today, it was really informative and the students learnt lots, I know I certainly did.” Marie Ruddy, Parliament Hill School. 

I would like to thank you and your team for supporting Southwark Safer Schools team this year. Preventative education on current issues we face on such a diverse borough as ours is hugely important.   I am especially appreciative of the engagement programmes carried out by GAV in our primary schools, an area of business unfortunately we as a team do not have sufficient resources to cover alone. I hope that you are able to support us again next year and that we are able to reach out to even more of our young people. May we continue to work together in successful partnership.” Sergeant Jayne McMahon, Southwark youth engagement team.

A huge thank you to your team mate today – she is an absolute star and has really got the measure of our super heroes. We have identified at least 2 who are already potentially being groomed and she is coming to discuss how we can impact on that further. I am so grateful and so impressed! Thank you thank you thank you!Meic Griffiths, Headteacher, Waterside SEMH Primary school, Greenwich.

I am just sending you a quick e-mail to say how impressed I was at the GAV workshop which was facilitated by Frankie.  The children were thoroughly engaged throughout and I felt that the perfect balance was struck between information sharing aninteractivity with the children. I would thoroughly recommend this workshop to all Year 6 classes and would really like any information on any further workshops that you provide. Please pass on my heartfelt thanks to Frankie!Jo Osman, Deputy Headteacher, Windrush Primary School, Greenwich.

Just to let you know the facilitator got rave reviews from the students and staff.  Pls feed this back.” Joy Andrews, Dunraven School.
