A social skills programme for Key Stage 1 pupils, this programme is designed to teach children the basic social skills and emotional vocabulary they need to function appropriately at school and home.
Research shows how important it is for children to develop the social and emotional skills to control and modify their behaviour. Emotional intelligence and resilience – the ability to be persistent, overcome frustration and meet a challenge – are seen as two of the most powerful predictors of life success.
Psychologists working in positive psychology believe that all aspects of life need to be embraced, and that coping with risk and challenge are good for us: stress and adversity are things we all experience, so children need to learn how to manage such challenges as early as possible.
The Purr-fect Skills programme can help pupils at any level to develop these skills. It can be used across a whole school, as part of the nurture group curriculum, or in a more targeted way, for children with the greatest social and emotional needs.
