In January 2002, the Department for Education and Skills commissioned Southampton University’s Health Education Unit to undertake a study examining how children’s emotional and social competence and wellbeing could most effectively be developed at national and local level and identifying those broad approaches which show most promise. The study involved a literature review, case study work in five local education authorities (LEAs) and interviews with professionals working in the field. The resulting report recommends action in a range of areas, all of which were identified in the research as being necessary in implementing an effective strategy at national and local level to promote children’s emotional and social competence and wellbeing.
The report has a practical emphasis throughout, looking at the views and findings of evaluators, experts and practitioners in relation to effective practice in this area. It aims to reflect both the current national policy context and the issues that LEAs perceive themselves to be facing, both of which have implications for any future work in this area.
