Creating kinder classrooms

Empowering children through kindness


At the School of Kindness, we believe that kind is the most important thing a child can be. We believe kindness exists inside all of us – sometimes we just need to unlock it. We help to create a culture of kindness in classrooms and work with thousands of children every year. We offer free Kindness Workshops, resources and lessons plans, and provide small grants via our Kindness Fund.

We are part of the 52 Lives charity. Our aim is to empower children by helping them realise that the little choices they make every day have the power to change lives and change the world, while also improving their own physical and mental health.


We run Kindness Workshops in primary schools all over the UK. Our Workshops aim to spread kindness and empower children by helping them to realise that the little choices they make every day have the power to change people’s lives, and improve their own physical and mental health at the same time. 

“You cannot teach a person anything, you can only help them find it within themself.”~ Galileo

Pick a Project is the place where kind schools who want to help, can find those in need of help. If you’re looking for a worthwhile cause to fundraise for, or if you’re a school (or an organisation) in need of essential items to improve the well-being of the children you work with, visit Pick and Project and get involved now. 


Our Lesson Plans and Activities teach children about the importance of kindness, the science of kindness and the impact it has on our physical and mental health. They are designed by teachers, for teachers, and support many of the aims and objectives of the PSHE curriculum for relationships and health education in primary schools. They are all downloadable free of charge.
