ignite™ innate resilience & wellbeing

An impactful mental health programme designed for the classroom

Made for 9-13-year-olds, the ignite™ programme is combatting the growing mental health crisis in our youth. Consisting of six 20-minute sessions with accompanying teacher’s guide, resources and interactivity throughout, ignite™ is a comprehensive wellbeing and resilience programme for young people.

The ignite™ programme covers common concerns such as:

  • Stress and pressure
  • Relationships with family and friends
  • Bullying
  • Feelings of overwhelm, insecurity, and anxiety
  • Labels, why we sometimes label ourselves and others
  • Attachments and how these can sometimes make us feel like our wellbeing can be damaged

What makes ignite™ unique?

  • Completely digital
  • Stimulating, fun, interactive, and educationally impactful for students (and teachers!)
  • Simple and easy for the classroom teacher to implement by just a simple ‘click & play’
  • We understand that the last thing teachers need is more training, that’s why ignite™ is fully self-sufficient
  • Bite-sized sessions of 20 minutes that can easily fit into any school timetable
  • Low cost, high volume, and high impact

How is it delivered?

Fantastically simple and intentionally short in duration, each 20-minute episode is delivered digitally by the classroom teacher through simply ‘clicking & playing’. The programme is designed to be flexibly delivered within the classroom: it can be shown over six sessions in whatever learning format the school chooses, for example during tutor group or homeroom.

We started with iheart in year 6 to help with their transitioning into senior school. ignite really helped students when they were feeling stressed or anxious about their results, it really helped.

Teacher, Norbury Primary School

What I liked about ignite was that it was really interactive. I really like the way you have created it and it just drew me in so much I was like ‘wow, this is so cool’ and I learned a lot of things along with it!

Student, age 11

I felt that the superhero session was extremely helpful because when I was younger I used to watch a lot of superhero movies, every day I used to wish that I was a superhero. But after the session, I found out, that not only am I a superhero, but everyone is a superhero in their own way.

Student, age 10

Before the exam I was feeling really really nervous, I was just thinking many thoughts in my head. But when I remembered a few of the lessons from ignite, it helped me feel calm.

Student, age 9

I would recommend it to other children as it helped me and I’m pretty sure it will help others too. It made some really valid and clear points, which I think are really helpful and useful for your wellbeing.

Student, age 9

ignite™ is the quickest and easiest way for schools to help student’s mental health and forms part of a wider product suite from iheart which includes wellbeing programmes for teachers, and parents or a fully facilitated programme.
