Programme Delivery Guide

This delivery guide is to support Health Mentors with the effective implementation of the neurocognitive development programme for Year 5 students in South London schools during 2022.

Unlike other courses hosted on this platform, this course has not been designed for you. Instead, the content is to be shared with the students you are working with using the classroom computer and smartscreen or interactive whiteboard.

The “Materials” tab above will take you to resources shared during the associated training event on 20 and 21 December 2021.

Course Navigation

The lessons are found at the bottom of this page or you can go directly to the relevant term using the links below.

It will help you keep track of which lessons you have completed by pressing the “Mark Complete” button at the end of each lesson.

Impact Assessment

The following data will be collected throughout the programme to assess its effectiveness:

  • Wellbeing Compass
  • CNSVS Neurocognitive Assessments
  • School attendance, behaviour and academic data
  • Feedback from students and teachers

Neuro Lesson Structure

The neurocognitive development programme has been designed to deliver the best outcomes given the daily 30 to 40 minute time constraint. Previous iterations of the programme have been piloted and these results have informed this version.

Each lessons contains the following three components that must be delivered in the following order:

Neuro Education Lesson Types

Neuro Movement and Neurocognitive Training components are more straightforward than Neuro Education. The content and format of these two components is consistent and requires less instruction. This additional guidance will support the second part of each lesson that will require more planning and preparation.

Neuro Education lessons within this course will fall into one of the following five daily categories. Click on the icons below for further information.

Additional Neuro Education Guidance

  1. Different lessons are needed for Sessions 1 and 60 to open and close the programme
  2. You need to decide which lessons should be prioritised in the face of changes to the school timetable
  3. Where lessons may need to be cut short, the 20 minute neurocognitive training component should take priority

Welcome Lesson

The following lesson can be used as an introduction for students to prepare them for the next 12 weeks:

Neurocognitive Development Programme – Welcome Lesson

Enhancing Your Cognitive Impact

You should focus your after school club activity to Year 5 students involved in the programme. In particular, the right kind of physical activity club that will enhance their cognitive performance and executive functions.

The APS programme contains 12 lessons and provides the challenge and stimulation that will complement the cognitive development they are experiencing within their neuro lessons.

  • Active Learning
  • Physical Engagement
  • Social Development

Encourage all Year 5 students to complete all 12 weeks of the APS course, ideally during the same term as their neurocognitive development programme. Delivery models to be repeated each term for both Y5 classes could include:

Six Week Programme

  • Mondays and Fridays  (15 students) 

Twelve Week Programme

  • Tuesdays (15 students) and Thursdays (15 students)
