1. Inclusive practice & social mobility
Being inclusive is about valuing equally all children and their families, whatever their ability, gender, language, ethnic or cultural origin. It involves everyone with respect and provides them with opportunities to develop and improve their circumstances.
2. Early Intervention
The years between 0 and five are decisive in a child’s development and in the shape of their whole lives. We know from a growing body of evidence about how children develop during their early years, how their brains grow and how important early life experiences are to their health, behaviour and developmental outcomes both as children and young people and as they become adults.
3. Families with SEND needs
Improving the wellbeing of families, and children, in particular, is a critical part of achieving early intervention outcomes. The emerging evidence is unequivocal: investing in wellbeing to improve life outcomes works – there are clear links between levels of wellbeing, inequality and social mobility
4. Creating a positive home learning environment
A sense of wellbeing contributes to a good home learning environment. Parents who are able to create a sense of optimism in their family, in spite of what can be major difficulties or setbacks in finances, health or other circumstances, are more likely to create an environment in the home where children learn and flourish.
