Ofsted has received criticism from two committees of MPs this week, who have slammed its failure to highlight the Rotherham child sex abuse scandal and the 'Trojan Horse' plot in Birmingham schools, after allegations of attempted takeovers by individuals looking to impose a view of radical Islam on the students.
Since stigma is still an issue even in today's society, we should be teaching ALL children to understand a range of emotions including mental illness from a young age.

Consent is a word we may think we have an understanding of, given its commonplace and importance in the law.

We live in a country where 30% of children leave school obese or overweight and where we spend £6billion on treating diet related diseases every year.
