https://www.tes.com/news/hinds-launches-activity-passport-primary-pupils Primary school children will be challenged to go on a nature trail, visit a local landmark or make a treasure map through a new "passport" of activities launched today by Damian Hinds. The move is aimed at encouraging more family time and building children's character and resilience. The activities are intended to support parents and schools in introducing children to a variety of experiences and fulfilling activities. However, the Department for Education told Tes that schools will not be given any additional funding to help pupils achieve these goals. The activities, endorsed by organisations including the Scouts, Girlguiding and the National Trust, are geared toward building children's confidence and curiosity through tasks like cooking a meal, exploring nature or learning to dance. All very worthy aims but with no extra funding and many of the activities needing time after school and at weekends, what do primary teachers think about it? Have they even been consulted? Are there the resources and expertise in schools to provide these experiences? Is this making up policy on the back of a fag packet?
