People often lament the fact that babies do not come with a manual!

Yet the science shows us that the first days, weeks and years of a child’s life have a lasting impact on their long-term health, happiness and wellbeing. Given this early period is so critical, we want to equip everyone with the knowledge of how babies’ brains are shaped and the role we all play in promoting healthy development. Introducing these concepts and ideas to children in secondary school offers a unique opportunity to establish a universal understanding for the next generation of caregiver.

The SEEN Programme (Secondary Education around Early Neurodevelopment) provides secondary schools with lesson plans, teaching resources and staff training to deliver this important content to young people. Join our SEEN Community to find out more and download the free lesson resources.

During the academic year 2020-21, Oxford University trialled the curriculum materials with more than 3700 pupils. Find out more about this pilot project here.
