Education, in its widest sense, should aim to develop the qualities in young people and allow them to make positive contributions to their local, and wider communities as they enter post-16 education, training or employment. These qualities of confidence, resilience, self-worth and respect for others will stand them in good stead for their own individual, personal and social development as well as academic achievement.
• Under the Education Act 2002/Academies Act 2010 all schools must provide a balanced and broadly-based curriculum which:
• promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society.
• prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
The 2006 Education and Inspections Act which came into effect in September 2007, laid a duty on Governing Bodies ‘to promote the well-being of pupils at the school’.
