Importance of sleep in the School curriculum

Department for Education unveils fresh guidelines for health lessons in England. Children as young as four are going to be taught about the importance of sleep as part of a curriculum shake-up. Issues covered in the lessons will include the link between physical and mental health, the importance of getting enough sleep and spending time outdoors. 

The changes are going to come into force in England from 2020, and it will be up to teachers to decide how frequently these classes are held.

Susan Lawrence, Headteacher at St Mary’s School in Brent says: “We notice that a lack of sleep can affect a child’s concentration, cognitive functions and ability to access the curriculum.” 

Anna Feuchtwang, chief executive of the National Children's Bureau, described the new guidelines as a "welcome step forward in preparing children for adulthood".
