The National Curriculum had placed personal and social education on the agenda of every primary school. This book, originally published in 1992, examines the quality and nature of relationships which contribute to a child’s personal development and social awareness, and discusses how schools organise pupil experiences and the complex interactions in classrooms. At the formal level it looks at how PSE may be taught through cross-curricular, thematic approach to all age groups.
