Emotional Literacy

‘Emotional Literacy’ is a term used to describe the children’s ability to adapt and thrive in the world around them.  If they are to be successful as they mature, they will need to be able to adapt to an ever-changing world and meet the challenges that will face them confidently.  Our Emotional Literacy Curriculum is broken down into five areas: being self-aware, managing their feelings, staying motivated, being empathetic and improving their social skills.  Developing these five areas is essential if they are to be productive members of their community.

During the school day, we seek to give the children as many opportunities to become fully-formed and emotionally literate individuals as is possible. Both in our morning Key Skills lessons (Maths, English and Science) and in our afternoon Enquiry Sessions, children are given a wide range of opportunities to develop emotionally.
