New 'Better Health' Bullying and Cyberbullying Resources

The ‘Better Health: Every Mind Matters’ suite of free PSHE education lesson plans and resources supports primary and secondary school teachers to promote the health and wellbeing of their pupils.

The latest lesson plans, which have received the PSHE Association Quality Mark, help pupils discuss the emotional impact of bullying, while exploring how to respond safely.

Research shows that one in four children who experienced online bullying did not report it to anyone.

These new Better Health lesson plans — one for Year 6 pupils and another for KS3-4 — use scenario-based activities to explore with pupils how they can support each other and seek help.

The materials are launched to coincide with Anti-Bullying Week 2021 and will help you meet the statutory RSHE requirements to teach about different types of bullying (including cyberbullying).

It’s time to talk about road safety - Parents, carers and educators are urged to talk to children in their care about road safety amidst growing concern that the pandemic has impacted young peoples’ exposure to ‘road risks’.

The call to action is particularly focused at families with 11- and 12-year-olds who are about to transition from primary to secondary school, and who may be preparing to commute to and from a new school solo for the first ever time in September.

A series of 5 videos have been launched via facebook with the aim of reaching out to as many parents/carers as possible. Each video depicts a jungle character displaying character traits that a child may have or relate to, such as the excitable and easily distracted Lemur: It's a Jungle Out There! - Lemur story - YouTube All 5 videos are available to view at www.itsajungleoutthere.info along with a free downloadable illustrated road safety guide.
