Creating Confident Kids is a whole school approach to emotional wellbeing, initially developed by Edinburgh schools. It is being championed by Sheila Laing head teacher and a service champion for Support from the Start.
Schools in the Support from the Start target areas in East and Midlothian are adopting this programme. An evaluation programme is built into the development which should in years to come give an idea of how well the programme is working.
Teaching about emotonal well being it is now part of the outcomes for the Curriculum for Excellence as outlined in Shielas presentation below, which was given to schools in Midlothian.
