Curriculum Leader for Personal Development

Used Smashed Online for 4 months

Oct 2020

It was a fantastic resource for our students during lock down. It covered issues which we know were challenging for some students at that time, and the professionalism of the resource package meant that my teachers could focus their energy on adapting follow-up challenges to specific student needs.

Jim Connolly found Smashed Online:
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    The impact of alcohol use on relationships
  • Moderately improves behaviour or wellbeing
    Confidence in decision making Confidence in expressing opinions on alcohol use Ability to evaluate the impact of decision making Empathy- looking at an event from a range of perspectives.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    In our case we used Smashed as part of distance learning during the Covid19 lock down, as it came as a well developed package it allowed our staff to concentrate on development of learning, not the resource.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    As mentioned, this was a brilliant package for us during lock-down. It was a great refresher for students who had seen the live performance, and allowed us to introduce a new year group to the story. My teacher's workload was significantly reduced by this resource.
  • Slightly saves school money
    It has as we haven't had to organise a school performance, but in all honesty we would prefer a love show once that is possible in the future.
  • Slightly improves school processes
    I'm not quite sure what this question means.
