Hi Anderley,

It is essential that we all reflect on our own practice and our own pre-conceived thoughts on certain topics and themes. Like we have seen with gender stereotyping, it is quite often unconscious societal norms that are creating these issues. Studies by the IPPN have shown that it takes 6 years for an initiative to become fully embedded in a school (2 years to pilot, 2 years to implement and a further 2 years to embed). This highlights the importance of tackling the development education themes as part of a whole-school approach – ensuring continuity and progress between each class level.
