SEEN Programme

Today we were delighted to share the results of the SEEN (Secondary Education around Early Neurodevelopment) programme, commissioned and funded by Kindred2. The programme aims to embed an understanding of the key principles of early child development through the science curriculum. The SEEN project was delivered through three lessons for key stage 3 classes, covering: brain development, the role of the caregiver and implications for long-term health outcomes.

Her Royal Highness Duchess of Cambridge visited Nower Hill High School in Harrow to see for herself our pioneering project teaching Key Stage 3 students about baby brain development.  

After her visit, Her Royal Highness met with leading academy CEOs to discuss the results of the first year of the programme which aims to embed the key principles of early child development and neuroscience for young people. 

The research and development has been led by the University of Oxford Department of Psychiatry and over 3500 students have taken part so far. We are funding a further roll-out next year so if you know of any schools that may be interested, please ask them to contact us via
