That something special to set you apart!

Using Pawprint Badges as part of your curriculum or after-school provision couldn’t be easier. It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3! From Independent Schools to Sate-Funded, here’s how…

1. Choose Your Badge

Browse our badges and decide which one you’d like to work on. Download the pre-made challenge pack or browse the free resources.

2. Complete your activities

All our challenges are young person friendly so you can give them the power or decide which activities you can facilitate, there’s no right or wrong way! Feel free to adapt, change and add your own activities…it works for you rather than you working for it!

3. Buy your badges

It’s always optional to buy badges from us but if you do then you’ll be helping more young people access life-changing adventures! 1% from the sale of every badge goes in to the Pawprint Trust (find out more below).

How will it work for me?

From our experience, every teacher and every setting is different and we don’t believe in being prescriptive. What works for one group of students will be different for another, so make it work for you. Within different settings we’ve found teachers integrate our badges as part of their daily curriculum, before/after school provisions, lunch clubs and for specific days/celebrations.

Award the badges as you see fit. You may want to award badges for successful completion of activities or for attendance on specific days/celebrations. Whatever works for you, works for us! All our badges are also Children’s University approved so you can count your Pawprint adventures as learning hours on your digital passport.

How much will it cost?

Nothing! All our activity ideas, resources and templates are (and always will be) FREE. The only cost is optional for awarding each child a badge. Badges cost £1.50 – £2.00 and some schools pass this on to parents/carers as part of an additional charge for a club.

What do we do with the badges?

We’ve got that one covered too. On our ‘Tribe Merchandise’ page you’ll find our camp blankets; perfect for sewing your badges on to and watching your collection grow. Many young people enjoy collecting their badges in this way and taking their blankets on residential trips as part of their adventure. We are also able to personalise the camp blankets with school logos so your students can look back and remember where their adventure started.

What equipment do I need?

Most activities need no additional equipment other than standard school items, such as a pencil or paper.

Browse Badges

1. Choose Your Location

Browse our Trails and select your chosen location. Purchase your copies of your chosen Trail. One Trail booklet will be fine for a group of 4-5 young people.

2. Complete your Trail

The Trails are written to be young person friendly so they can work independently or with teacher/adult supervision. Why not set your groups off at different times and then time them to add a competitive edge?

3. Submit your answers and buy your badges

Submit your answers online to see if you were correct. The Trail badges are a great reward for your efforts and the perfect way to add to your collection and show the world you conquered that location!

How will it work for me?

Pawprint Trails are perfect for day visits or school trips. The Trails themselves take only a few hours to complete while the ‘Extend Your Adventure’ suggestions on your map or the ‘Here’s an Idea!’ tips from your Trail booklet can extend your adventure beyond this.

When submitting your answers online (using your Unique Reference Code found in your order confirmation email) you’ll also find a host of FREE activity ideas related to your Trail/location. These might be food, games, craft or other activities (in the same way as Pawprint Badges) to keep the fun going even when you get back or have completed your Trail.

Do I need to do any preparation?

You’re always welcome to complete the Trail before your young people to familiarise yourself with the route. We do our best to ensure that the Trails and clues are as accurate and up to date as possible and include safety information where necessary.

Please do remember that we are not responsible for your safety and to complete your own risk assessment guidance provided by your organisation and maintain adult to child ratios.

What equipment do I need?

Generally all you’ll need is a pen/pencil per group along with a Trail, any other equipment will be listed on the cover of your Trail booklet or in your order confirmation email. Other than that it’s as simple as turning up and turning detective to solve the clues!

How much will it cost?

Each Trail copy retails at £7.00 so split between 4 that’s a maximum cost of £1.75 per student for a least 2-3 hours of fun! With the free activities and suggestions to extend your adventure you can be sure that that’s great value for money.

Please note trails should not be reproduced without written permission.

Find a Trail

1. Choose Your Tale

Browse our selection of Tales and select your location. Purchase a copy of your chosen Tale.

2. Enjoy an adventure from the comfort of your classroom

Tales are written for readers aged 7-11 however they’re also fun to read together for younger groups with items hidden in the illustrations for you to spot along the way so settle down and prepare to discover somewhere new.

3. Complete your Trail or additional FREE activities (both optional)

The Tales are written to accompany our Trails so why not read Alfie’s adventure before completing a real-life adventure of your own. Alternatively, to accompany each Tale there are FREE activities to download and print to accompany the story; from colouring sheets to word searches and bingo. The adventure ends when you decide!

How will it work for me?

Why not use a Tale as part of a local history project or as part of an English/Literacy project? Pawprint Tales are the perfect accompaniment to Pawprint Trails so why not read your Tale before you go or as part of an extended adventure when you return!

Enjoy as part of a group session or share the story in instalments each day/week. The Tales are designed to get you exploring the UK from the comfort of your classroom so you decide how they work best for you.

What equipment do I need?

Just yourself and your Tale! You’ll also need a printer if you want to complete any of the additional free activity downloads available from the website but that’s entirely up to you!
