The Life Channel focuses on the hopes and aspirations for our children and young people. It is all about celebrating school life while also addressing some of the important issues.
Our mission is to help produce inspiring and motivational programmes that are often broadcast alongside projects filmed by the children and young people themselves.
How does The Life Channel Work?
Life Channel schools share a world of adventure, creativity and opportunity for their pupils in this digital landscape which is their very own to design, build, share and explore.
Each school that joins The Life Channel network is provided with a piece of hardware called a Content Manager which can be connected to your existing digital technology such as interactive white boards, TV’s and projectors.
We can help you, your school and the wider community…
The Life Channel has been instrumental in helping schools improve their OFSTED grading. The bespoke nature of the School TV Network allows schools to specifically target and address issues highlighted by visiting OFSTED examiners, enabling schools to quickly and effectively act on their OFSTED feedback reports
Whilst information technology plays a key role in how our school children learn and develop, it is also one of the greatest contributors of carbon emissions in schools. The Life Channel's content encourages schools to become more environmentally friendly through the use of eco-systems and by reducing waste
With OFSTED now assessing the extent to which spiritual, moral, social and cultural development are promoted in the schools, education leaders can support the fulfilment of these criteria by joining our community to share with and learn from other schools throughout the UK.
Health and Well-being
The Life Channel's production team develop content to target key health and well-being issues throughout the year. Using the Schools TV Network as a platform, The Life Channel tries to encourage children and young people to take responsibility for their own health through their diet, fitness regime and dental care.

Ranelagh Primary School, Newham
The introduction of all-weather screens in the playground and the implementation of Film projects across the curriculum has inspired and motivated the whole school and it has sparked the children's creativity. The 'Studio in a Box', with green screen technology, is compact, portable and user friendly and we have incorporated the system into many of our subjects.
Finham Primary School, Coventry
We make films about things that they have been doing in class also if classes are out on a trip, photos and videos are taken during the day then a small show is made of that and uploaded on to the screens outside so we can share with visitors and parents what children get up during the school day
