Connect is the first wellbeing curriculum to be fully informed by psychological research. Specifically, each term focuses on one of the ‘Six Ways to Wellbeing’ (challenging oneself, giving to others, exercise, self care, connecting with others and embracing the moment). Additionally, throughout the curriculum children learn to use a range of key skills, which have also been demonstrated through psychological research (based on ‘The DNA-V Model’), and provide an exciting new way for children to talk about their thoughts and feelings.
“It has been inspiring to see the children developing a clear sense of their world and how they can better manage their thoughts, feelings, happiness and contribution to their community. The model provides clear language for the children to express their thoughts clearly and the interactive approach has been extremely inclusive and engaging”
Year 5 teacher, Blackhorse Primary School.

“PSHE has always been a priority for our school. The resources will help us to promote the social and emotional skills that children will need. We don’t know how our pupils have been affected by lockdown, but we want to give them the opportunity to talk about their feelings and express themselves.” - Assistant Headteacher Suzanne Evans, Broadgreen Primary, Liverpool
