Over the past 12 months Tranmere Community Project have been piloting a programme to develop emotional intelligence among Key Stage 2 level children, between the ages of 9 and 11 years. TCP has delivered seven programmes in four different schools across the Wirral. The programme allows children to consider how to manage emotions, develop relationships, improve confidence and self esteem and to manage their behaviour. The work has been a great success so far with children being able to cope better socially and emotionally. In the future we want to roll the programme out across more schools in the Wirral and reach more vulnerable children. – Catherine Hitchell
