What is it?

Personal, Social and Emotional Development is recognised as one of the building blocks of success in life. It supports children’s development by helping them to interact effectively and develop positive attitudes to themselves and others. However, this does not happen in isolation and relies on influential adults such as parents and carers providing them with positive feedback and modelling appropriate behaviour.

In the Revised EYFS PSED is broken down into three aspects:

  • Self-confidence and self-awareness
  • Managing feelings and behavior
  • Making relationships

Self-confidence and self-awareness

This aspect is about how children come to develop confidence in who they are and what they can do and in expressing their own ideas We know that although many children have several people who care deeply about them all children need to have at least one person who is ‘on their side’ for them to really thrive. This helps the child feel valued and special and gives them a sense of self-worth. This in turn leads to them being confident with others and knowing when they need support from other people.

Managing Feelings and Behaviour

This aspect is about how children can understand their own feelings and other people’s feelings, and how they learn to manage their feelings without letting them spill out at every small annoyance they meet. It also links to how they learn and can follow simple rules which operate in different places such as home and a setting or a play area. Children need the support of adults to help them to understand these complex and often challenging areas.

some initial thoughts:
* Instead of saying "psychic" which is a linguistic hot button -- let's say instead "paying attention," which is something less inflammatory and everyone feels they can do.
* When I first started writing resumes, the overwhelming emphasis in the field of career counseling was "get the person a job" and any job would do. If the counselor helped the person get a job, WHAT that job was did not matter, the counselor had succeeded. This is not my own opinion, this is published fact. This attitude is still prevalent in Human/Social Services although it has become less popular in academic job counseling environments (i
