Student wellbeing is central to the ethos of our school. We are therefore delighted to share with you a new service designed to support young people aged 7-12 (years 3-7) who are experiencing fears or worries (funded by Child and Family Health Devon.) - Luminova!

What is Lumi nova?

Lumi Nova : Tales of courage is an intergalactic adventure game where players step into the shoes of a newly recruited Luminaut and start an exciting adventure through space – travelling to different planets, meeting new characters, solving puzzles and attempting challenges. Lumi nova support young people to fight fears and manage worries. Whilst exploring planets, customising characters and earning treasure your child breaks their fears and worries down into manageable steps, learning life-long skills and building resilience.

Lumi nova is designed for 7-12 year olds (school years 3-7) who are having difficulties with fears and worries related to social situations, separation or phobias, but may also be helpful for young people outside this age range.

Designed by BFB Labs, Lumi Nova was developed with NHS clinicians and leading academics. It is based upon Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Exposure therapy which are proven to be effective. Lumi Nova is recommended by NICE (Nice Institute for Health and & Care Excellence) and adheres to strict standards of clinical safety.
