Game Changers workbook

Game Changers is a reading programme designed for excluded students or students at risk of exclusion from mainstream settings.

This area is for schools and organisations who have already signed up to the programme. It provides guidance documents and all of the digital resources needed to run the 20 Game Changers lessons.

Downloads will only be accessible to schools who have purchased Game Changers in the last 12 months.

Guidance documents

  • Before accessing any materials, we recommend reading the Game Changers - teacher guide: which outlines the programme in detail and introduces all included resources.
  • The guidance for running football sessions document explains the videos and session plans we provide - if you do wish to use football as a reward and motivator for engagement in the classroom.
  • Finally, the guidance for running a book group provides an optional, structured approach to using the books in the Game Changers box. Please note, the books in the book box are to promote reading for pleasure. They are not necessary to complete the programme. All of the texts for the programme are within the Game Changers workbook.

Digital lesson resources

Game Changers consists of 20 sessions. The scheme of work splits these lessons into clusters of three - as shown below:
