Introduction

Encourage achievement across the curriculum with this invaluable resource

Help Children Achieve More: A Practical Curriculum for all Schools is an invaluable resource bank for those practitioners who face the challenge of implementing the Every Child Matters agenda in their school.

Despite the shift in policy that accompanied the change of government in May 2010 the new government recognizes that it cannot justifiably interfere with the important pillar of recent children’s policy that is Every Child Matters – it will continue both in spirit and in practice (if not in name) as it has succeeded in providing a common purpose, a ‘framework of guiding principles’ for schools and services.

The aim of the Every Child Matters agenda is to support children to be healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution and achieve economic wellbeing. Help Children Achieve More: A Practical Curriculum for all Schools is a resource that will enable schools to ensure the delivery of each of the five outcomes at a very practical level.

By offering protection, nurturing and opportunities to improve the life chances of all children, Help Children Achieve More will help your children to become effective and successful learners, develop and sustain positive relationships, become more motivated, deal effectively with conflict and develop excellent problem solving skills.

Summary of contents

Despite the shift in policy that accompanied the change of government in May 2010 the new government recognizes that it cannot justifiably interfere with the important pillar of recent children’s policy that is Every Child Matters – it will continue both in spirit and in practice (if not in name) as it has succeeded in providing a common purpose, a ‘framework of guiding principles’ for schools and services.

This book translates a vast literature on the ECM initiative into a practical resource that will enable schools to adopt a systematic approach to implementing the key principles that underpin this important legislation.

Help Children Achieve More is written in three parts: Part 1 contains an introduction to the ECM agenda and the five outcomes for well-being. The second part of the book contains a PowerPoint presentation that can be used to introduce practitioners to the ECM agenda and introduces the well-being curriculum as well as providing several examples and a suite of practical activities. The third part contains activity sheets that form the programme.
