Following funding from the Department of Education, the Character Education in the East Devon Secondary School Partnership delivered a 12-month Character Education project across five secondary schools in the east of Devon. One of their main aims was to improve emotional health and wellbeing outcomes for learners.
Measurement data from 283 pupils showed that overall well-being increased to a statistically significant degree after participating in the programme, seeing most of the different in the students who already had lower wellbeing scores. Qualitative feedback was in the main positive with students noting it would help in a variety of settings, helped them to get active and to learn to control negative responses that might get them into trouble.
All five schools intend to continue using LLTTF for Young People, and will look to use these materials more widely across all year groups from September. Full report here.
