Children with low self-esteem will have difficulty in partaking in classroom lessons and succeeding. If we want to help children in the primary school to achieve the positive outcomes set out in the Every Child Matters agenda, we need to ensure all children have a healthy self-esteem. This book seeks to give adults in schools tools to look at the way they could enhance self esteem in children.
The book comes with an accompanying CD-Rom which contains:
- inset sessions for all adults in the school
- workshops specifically aimed at non-teaching personnel, including mid-day supervisors
- sessions for teachers and classroom assistants
- classroom lessons and activity sheets for the children which can form part of your school's personal, social and health education (PSHE) programme.
This book is a whole school training programme for raising self-esteem and is essential reading for all those working in primary education.
