Insideout and the psche curriculum
'Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we’re positive, our brains are more motivated, engaged, energetic, resilient, and productive.' (Psychological Bulletin, 2007)
The purpose of InsideOut is to inspire children to be happy, inside and out, through a whole-school culture of wellbeing. Because happy children learn better. Extensive research compiled by the New Economics Foundation, in response to a commission by the government’s Project on Mental Capital and Wellbeing, shows that there are 5 evidence-based actions, that if practiced regularly, can improve personal wellbeing. Insideout have linked each of these actions to a specific 'key'. We have adopted the '5 Keys of Happiness' to help us create our very own bespoke PSCHE curriculum to help us ensure that these actions are fully embedded into our whole school curriculum.
Each half term we have a 'focus key' from the InsideOut toolkit.
Term 1 is a reminder of all the keys
Term 2 Look Inside
Term 3 Move Outside
Term 4 Be Curious
Term 5 Be Kind
Term 6 Share More
