Beyond Bricks: Lego-Based Play For Schools

Beyond Bricks is Lego® Based Play that uses a 'recovery to discovery' approach to enhance children's overall mental health and wellbeing, now and in the future.

What is Beyond Bricks?

Beyond Bricks is Lego® Based Play which uses a 'recovery to discovery' approach to enhance childrens overall mental health and wellbeing, now and in the future. We will work with schools to support the pupils recover and discover new skills to enable them to overcome impact of the pandemic, by focusing on five key aspects of emotional wellbeing as identified by the Education Authority 'Emotional Health and Wellbeing Framework'.

  • Self-awareness
  • Motivation
  • Self-control
  • Social Resilience
  • Coping

Pupils will take part in a 5 week interactive programme in their school with their own teachers co-facilitating the programme with trained Beyond Bricks Associates. Each pupil will leave with a personalised toolkit to help them cope with all five areas of the Emotional Health and Wellbeing Framework to navigate their future with confidence.

Beyond Bricks is a pilot funded by Lloyds.
