Their What is wellbeing? assembly and Self-care resource can help young people understand the meaning of wellbeing and explore activities to help them feel good and boost their physical and mental health.
Accredited by the PSHE Association and the NHS, they include an immersive film featuring young people speaking about their thoughts on self-care, worksheets and scenario-based activities that can be delivered flexibly across the school timetable.
These are available to download for free on the School Zone website.

Teacher/staff training sessions We highly recommend that to ensure that the activities, games and discussions used in Talk About Alcohol are fully understood and embraced by staff, training is organised for all relevant staff. Our highly trained staff demonstrate best practice use of our resources as well as the games and activities suitable for young people. Sessions can be tailored to suit your school and a Q and A session is also included. Evidence shows that PSHE education is best delivered by well trained staff who are trusted by pupils who know them well. ‘One off’ sessions delivered by visitors to school are enjoyed but do not lead to behaviour change as several lessons that build spirals of knowledge and understanding are key.
April is Stress Awareness Month, so Education Support have put together some new resources.
