Excerpt from an article about how Topcliffe Primary School in Birmingham is boosting results with Performance Learning lessons.
Primary school pupils in a deprived part of Birmingham are on a learning curve about how to deal with emotions, sleep and time management in a programme helping to maximise potential.
Eleven-year-old Kyle used to go to bed at 11.30pm until he took lessons at his primary school in Birmingham about the importance of sleep, as part of a teaching initiative helping to raise standards at his school.
Now, instead of battling with his mother to stay up and watch more television, he goes to bed about 8.30pm and says: “I feel happier. I’m not in a mood any more. I feel more awake in my lessons.”
