The National Curriculum framework states that schools should offer a curriculum which:
- promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils
- prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life
- equips pupils with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions
A report recently written by the DFE stated that, ‘children with higher levels of emotional, behavioural, social and school well-being on average have higher levels of academic achievement and are more engaged in school, both concurrently and in later years.’
At Telford Junior School we have embraced Protective Behaviours and Thrive to support our work to achieve the above statements, alongside our PSHE curriculum and SMSC development.
