Promoting positive body image within primary schools
Promoting positive body image
Ofsted good practice example, published today, shows how Oak Cottage Primary School developed a positive body image programme in their school.
This good practice example shows how you can tackle this issue in your own school and contains really useful information and guidelines with links to lesson overviews for each year group. The aim of this program was to increase teachers’, parents’, carers’ and pupils’ awareness of body image and to focus on how images portrayed within the media can impact on how pupils view themselves and others.
