Curriculum Links

Careless Talk supports the notion of a broader school curriculum where pupils not only develop understanding and skills but also become co-constructors in their own learning, participating meaningfully to question, reflect and act on things that have a direct relevance to the real world. These are necessary not only for academic attainment but also for the self-fulfillment and development of pupils as active citizens, ready for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. The programme provides opportunities for pupils to engage and develop as:

  • Successful Learners who enjoy learning and make progress and achieve
  • Confident individuals who are able to lead healthy and fulfilling lives
  • Responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society

It also provides a context for the development of:

  • Attitudes and attributes
  • Skills
  • Knowledge and understanding

The outcomes of Careless Talk support the Every Child Matters initiative making a contribution to the “Enjoy and achieve” and “Make a positive contribution” strands by addressing the following priorities:

  • Improve access to and take up of broader learning opportunities
  • Ensure that children and young people are better able to respond to challenges
