Skills for life

13th April 2007 at 01:00
The majority of primary schools are providing a high standard of education for pupils' personal and social development.

A report by HMIE, Ready for Life, finds that almost every school ranks as "good" or "very good". It states: "In most schools, pupils received a wide range of experiences which enabled them to develop an appropriate set of skills to face the challenges of life beyond the primary school."

Among the highlights are: the commitment of staff to the welfare of pupils; the quality of links with parents and the wider community; innovative approaches to developing PSD; and the increasing number of cross-curricular areas emphasising aspects of pupils' PSD, such as enterprise education, eco projects and citizenship.
