“Progression and development in many aspects of health and wellbeing will depend upon the stage of growth,
development and maturity of the individual, upon social issues and upon the community context. Teachers and
other practitioners in planning together will take account of these factors, ensuring that experiences are relevant
and realistic for the child or young person in his or her circumstances. Particularly within experiences and outcomes
which span more than one level, careful planning will be required to ensure appropriate pace and coverage, and
teachers and other practitioners will need to decide when and how the experiences and outcomes are introduced.
The planning arrangements within which local authorities, schools and teachers work must ensure that these
decisions are taken in the best interests of each child and young person and take account of his or her social and
personal circumstances as necessary."
