Primary School

Every child has brilliance inside them. Our job is to dig it out and give it to the world!

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Personal, Social and Emotional Development


This is another prime area of learning in the EYFS. We work hard with the children, helping them to understand and control their emotions. We work on friendships and resilience. The children are encouraged to take risks and challenges and understand that it is okay to make mistakes as it is how we learn! 


ELG 06            Self-confidence and Self awareness         

Children are confident to try new activities, and say why they like some activities more than others. They are confident to speak in a familiar group, will talk about their ideas, and will choose the resources they need for their chosen activities. They say when they do or don’t need help.


ELG 07            Managing Feelings and Behaviour

Children talk about how they and others show feelings, talk about their own and others’ behaviour, and its consequences, and know that some behaviour is unacceptable. They work as part of a group or class, and understand and follow the rules. They adjust their behaviour to different situations, and take changes of routine in their stride.


ELG08            Making relationships                       

Children play co-operatively, taking turns with others. They take account of one another’s ideas about how to organise their activity. They show sensitivity to others’ needs and feelings, and form positive relationships with adults and other children.
