Getting it Right for Every Child Teacher Toolkit

Following on from the success of the Getting it Right for Every Child (GIRFEC) GetLive! Project, Children in Scotland is in the process of developing a toolkit to support teachers and practitioners to share the messages of GIRFEC and wellbeing with children aged 3-12.

This work is informed by the views of children and young people, about how they would like to learn about wellbeing, expressed during the GetLive! event and follow-up event.  

The toolkit will include: guidelines for teachers and early years practitioners; a range of resources in different media and differentiated for age groups and needs; and classroom activities for children. The resources will be fun and creative and will introduce children to GIRFEC in an age appropriate way.     

Children in Scotland will collaborate with partners to ensure that the work complements activities that are directed at older young people (12-21). Consultation will also take place with a small number of teachers and others working within the children and young people’s sector to ensure that the toolkit is of a high standard.  

This programme of work is funded by the Scottish Government and will run until Autumn 2016.
