The way teenagers recognise, understand and deal with their feelings is now considered vital for good learning behaviour. Consequently, two secondary schools in Wiltshire teach a modular programme in emotional intelligence at KS3 and KS4.

The Corsham School, a Specialist Visual Arts College, has a broadly average pupil intake. Springfields Specialist Sports College is an SEN residential school for troubled teenagers who have been unable to cope in a mainstream setting.

In a form tutor session on bullying, science teacher Emma Davies at the Corsham School helps Year 7s to recognise discrepancies between their feelings and their actions.

At Springfields, pastoral care team member John Rogers teaches his Year 9 group how to change their attitude from negative to positive.

Find out what effect the programme has had on the schools and the pupils give us their opinions on learning about emotional intelligence.
