7 Master Principles of Positive Potential®

At every stage and every age, we cover our 7 Master Principles that form the basis of Positive Potential®. 


We take care of what we value. The more children value themselves and others, the more they will reflect this in their behaviour. Positive Potential® helps pupils to identify their personal values, to respect the values of others and to see the potential value in all experiences.


Curiosity is the tool with which we unlock our new understanding of ourselves. The programme invites deep questioning of the world around us, our thoughts, our feelings and the way we act, so new conclusions can be drawn and used to reach our potential.


Strong connection to others and ourselves is identified as key to our emotional stability and mental health. It is the foundation on which it is safe for us to fail and feel pain, without being destroyed by it. It is one of the main ingredients of resilience


Emotional Intelligence, self awareness and allowing the time and space for these to grow and develop are essential to great mental health. Pupils are given the skills needed to become more aware of their thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and those of others.


Personal responsibility allows you to take back control over your own mindset. It ends self sabotage, victim mentality and many other harmful mindsets and replaces it with a healthy understanding of choice and consequence.


Understanding, without consistent action does not lead to change. Positive Potential® encourages and supports micro committments to action and demonstrates how this leads to huge leaps forward for both individuals and groups as a whole.


Once all the Master Principles have been taught, demonstrated and understood, they are brought to life for every pupil by ensuring they reach a point of ‘actualisation’. This is where everything comes together and is working well to enable lifetime changes.

Measureable Progress

The Spiral Scale®


We measure progress using our simple Sprial Scale®. Each of the Master Principles builds upon the other and not only increases knowledge but it also designed to increase wellbeing at the same time.

Much like a spiral, the knowledge is repeated but expanded upon in each learning session. At the same time as expanding it is also moving in an upwards motion so that as the principles are understood and actioned, wellbeing increases in a positive upwards direction.
