The PSHE Association has collaborated with RSPH and the Health Foundation to create free to download lesson plans, teacher guidance and a wealth of accompanying materials which focus on the factors that influence our health and wellbeing.
The lessons take their inspiration from a dystopian short story by Tim Byrne, which won a national competition run by RSPH and the Health Foundation. The focus throughout the lessons is on raising awareness of steps young people can take to support their physical and emotional health whilst recognising the influences, limitations and constraints on these decisions.
Aimed at year 9 and 10 students, this resource seeks to support schools to build student resilience to unhealthy wellbeing choices. It helps raise awareness of the social, environmental and economic factors that influence our health such as our education and employment opportunities; our housing; our social networks; where we live, and the extent such factors facilitate exercise, a good diet and social connection. It also helps students develop skills such as critical evaluation of advertising and problem-solving.

The PSHE Association have worked with the Home Office on creating fully updated PSHE education resources to support the government’s Disrespect NoBody campaign.
The campaign, and resources, aim to help young people understand and maintain healthy relationships while learning about consent and what constitutes controlling behaviour, violence and abuse.
By promoting healthy attitudes and behaviours at an early age, the campaign seeks to challenge damaging ones and prevent the onset of domestic violence in adults in the long term.
These free resources will support you to help young people develop key PSHE skills and attributes such as empathy, respect, communication and negotiation so that they can enjoy healthy relationships as they grow up and in adulthood.
The PSHE Association has worked with the Home Office to update and streamline the lesson plans, guidance and activities for 2018, following helpful feedback from our members. The pack includes the following materials which can be easily integrated into your PSHE education planning:
- A campaign discussion guide
- Discussion guides, lesson plans and ready-made template slide decks on three topics: relationship abuse, sharing sexual images and consent
- Interactive classroom activities, including agony aunt responses, true or false questions and myth busting activities

Children face lots of different types of change in life. They may find change fun and exciting, but also scary and worrying. At this time of year, you may have pupils preparing to transition from primary to secondary school. Young Minds 360 schools have provided a number of resources you can use to help your pupils cope with the transition and understand how they’re feeling about it.
These resources – aimed for both Year 6 and Year 7 pupils – will help children face some of their fears and worries about moving to secondary school. They’ve included activities that will encourage pupils to find solutions or strategies to manage their feelings. Learning about transition and how to cope with it will prepare your pupils for the many other changes they face in life.
National Smile Month is about promoting and raising awareness of the three key messages in helping to develop and maintain good oral health:
1. Tooth brushing
Brush your teeth last thing at night and on one other occasion with the correct fluoride toothpaste.
- 1,000ppm (parts per million) under 3 years
- 1,350ppm (parts per million) 3 years plus
Cut down on frequency of sugary foods and drinks as these should be kept to mealtimes
3. Dental visits
Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend
To support these important oral health messages, the oral health promotion team in Barnet will be attending schools and Children’s centres and North London Business Park where they will be promoting Smile month and providing resources and information supporting these key messages.
