Schools Information

L.E.D (Let Everyone Decide) is presented by Oriel Ministries a registered charity focusing their work in the schools of the South-West. L.E.D is a Christian team who aim to work with and partner alongside local schools, churches and other organisations, bringing with them substantial experience in working with young people and presenting positive life choices in a culturally relevant manner. With an excellent presentation combine music and faith with a brand new sound, lively performance, positive lyrics and message inspiring young people to reach their potential whilst having the confidence and knowledge in how to deal with some of life’s big issues.

WHAT WE OFFER

L.E.D offer a creative, exciting package of performance, lessons, assemblies, workshops and concerts aimed at supporting the National Curriculum and local schemes of work in Religious Education, Music, Dance/Drama and PSHE/SMCS/Citizenship.

The multi-sensory teaching approach helps young people to look at the pressures they face in today’s society and promotes discussions around these issues, equipping and encouraging young people to think about the lifestyle choices they make, and how a person’s beliefs impact the way they live their lives. Specific issues addressed will include dealing with, and attitudes to: drugs, alcohol, bullying, self-worth/identity, relationships, peer pressure, morality, gangs etc.

L.E.D’S TYPICAL PROGRAM

L.E.D will work with each school individually to design and create a programme that would best meet their requirements. Ideally we offer a full week enabling a full timetable to be arranged and will provide a range of assemblies, lessons and workshops tailored in advance to the needs of the school. At the end of the week, usually a Friday night, the band will perform a full length concert as part of a multi-media event for students from the school. L.E.D also offers different packages and programmes for schools needing a more varied/shorter programme.
