PSHE
PSHE provides pupils with the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes to make informed decisions about their lives.

PSHE

PSHE is a vital part of supporting resilience by helping students recognise and manage risky behaviours, and includes:

  • relationships and sex education
  • drug education (including alcohol, tobacco and volatile substance abuse) 
  • emotional health and wellbeing, and mental health 
  • safety (including online safety, personal safety and bullying)
  • healthier lifestyles 

We can work with you to help build pupil voice across the school through our support for school staff around promoting school councils, and help celebrate your work via our Learner Participation Awards.

Wellbeing
A whole school approach to wellbeing can be a powerful tool for school improvement and increased pupil attainment and achievement.

Wellbeing

Our work is needs-led and focused on your key priorities for wellbeing across the whole school community. A focus on building resilience by supporting EHWB/PSHE in schools can help increase aspiration and achievement as well as help children and young people understand and manage risks linked to sexual health or drugs and alcohol, and help them adopt healthier lives.

Physical activity
For the first time in history the lack of physical activity in our lives means that this generation of children may have a life expectancy of 5 years less than that of their parents.

Physical activity

We are supporting the PE and School Support Strategy, 'Time to Move'. The strategy essentially focuses on the wellbeing of students and how it can be supported through the implementation of PE in the school environment.

Training and resources
We offer a comprehensive and highly regarded training programme covering all aspects of wellbeing work in schools.

Training and resources

Alongside training we have a wide range of resources to support your work. Our resources include ones we've developed locally which are now gaining national recognition through awards and being cited as best practice in key national wellbeing strategies. All our support for schools is offered free of charge.
