Launchpad Champions can be run in a classroom, hall or library at a time that suits the school/kura best: before or after school, at lunchtime, or during school hours.

The Education and Training Act 2020 (section 56) allows schools to close for up to one hour per week or 20 hours a year, to allow for ‘religious instruction’—meaning Launchpad’s programme can be run during school hours if this suits best.

The Act (section 58) also requires parents must confirm in writing they wish their children to take part. Opt-in forms for schools to send out can be accessed on Launchpad’s website.
