Abstract

To become better learners in class, to succeed more generally at school and in their personal lives, children need opportunities to develop more than their cognitive skills. Social and emotional competencies are linked by DEMOS (2009) to educational success and by Weare and Gray (2003) to positive behaviour, improved learning, greater social cohesion, improvements in mental health and increased degrees of school inclusion.
