Featured Products for Schools

NHS Explorer Primary and Special School's Project

We worked in collaboration with the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement to produce Monkey’s NHS Explorer Primary Resource Pack. It was sent to over 20,000 Primary and Special schools in England. Encouraging children to maintain a healthy and safe lifestyle whilst introducing the Emergency Care and Urgent pathways available to children, young people and their families locally.
A series of film clips support this resource and are made accessible to all through a kind donation of BSL translation from ITV SignPost, plus Audio Description from ITFC. (these films can be found on Monkey’s You Tube channel https://www.youtube.com/c/Monkeywellbeing )

The pack was formally evaluated by Liverpool John Moore’s University please see below to read it in full.

To watch a summary of the project just click on the film.

All the resources in the pack are available to download for free.
