High expectations for teaching scheme

    Primary school children are to be taught how to behave in a
    £7m scheme announced by the Department for Education and
    Skills.

    Children will be taught “what is expected of them and what they
    can expect from others”, says a statement from the department.

    The “social and emotional aspects of learning” curriculum aims
    to teach children behaviour skills so they are emotionally and
    socially equipped and less likely to get into trouble.

    Programmes will be rolled out across England following
    successful trials in 25 local education authorities as part of the
    Primary National Strategy Behaviour and Attendance programme.
