Every Child Matters: Changes for Children in Schools (DfES 2004e) identifies that pupil performance and well-being go hand in hand. Children and young people cannot learn if they do not feel safe or if health problems create barriers. The 5 outcomes for children and young people are central to ensuring that effective, joined-up children’s services, from education, health and social care, provide ‘wraparound’ care in and on the site of schools, ensuring that children:
- are safe
- stay healthy
- enjoy and achieve
- make a positive contribution
- achieve economic and social well-being
The principles of Every Child Matters are at the heart of our PSHE and Citizenship (PSHCE) Policy.
