PSHE, Student Wellbeing and Covid

Brand new, PSHE and health and wellbeing materials from Chameleon PDE


ChameleonWe’ve heard about schools who are very concerned about the mental health of their pupils but, due to the current Covid crisis, are struggling to timetable enough PSHE to meet student need.

Our friends at Chameleon PDE have come up with a solution. They have been busy developing new PSHE / Health and wellbeing materials for secondary schools which include a range of activities that can be delivered in 10, 20, or 30-minute sections, ideal for tutor delivery or for restricted lesson times. If lessons are longer, activities can be combined, fitting with any lesson length.

One of the many benefits of using Chameleon resources are their PSHE / WELLBEING HOME LEARNING materials.

Chameleon Home LearningPupils who are at home due to Covid restrictions also don’t have to miss out on their PSHE / health and wellbeing lessons. Chameleon PDE’s Home Learning resources have been written carefully so that content is appropriate, leaving more the sensitive areas to be taught and discussed in school by teachers during contact time.

This can ensure students are receiving a full and potentially an enhanced programme, even though time in school may be restricted.

Chameleon have also produced a teaching pack with over 60 hours of teaching material specifically focussed on Covid-19 that can be used for personal development lessons in school.

You can sign up for a free account, download samples and find out more here

We very much hope that you will take a look at Chameleon PDE and find their offering both helpful and affordable in these challenging times.

With the help of our partners we have specially designed resources that explore topics such as emotional wellbeing, mental health, how they can use their voices for good and anti-bullying.

Get Ready for Anti-Bullying Week 2019

This year, Anti-Bullying Week takes place from 11th to the 15th November


Anti-bullying Week 2019 Logo Square
Anti-Bullying Week is coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance which is based at the National Children's Bureau. The campaign was started in the early 2000s as a way of focussing the attention of schools on tackling bullying between children and young people.

Change Starts With Us

This year, Anti-Bullying Week has the theme ‘Change Starts With Us’, underlining how everyday acts like listening to young people, having a conversation, thinking about the impact of our words or stopping before hitting ‘like’ on a hurtful social media post, can help to reduce bullying.


Aims

The campaign objective is to emphasise that we all have a part to play: Change Starts With Us.

The aims of the week are to support schools and other settings to help children and young people, schools staff, parents and other professionals who work with children to understand:

  • bullying is still a serious issue
  • we are all responsible
  • a small change can make a bit difference
  • change starts now!
  • How to get involved

    There are many ways you can get involved this year, with different events taking place throughout the week:

    ‘Change Starts With Us’ is the main overarching theme for this year’s Anti-Bullying Week and was developed with young people, so why not help promote the message on your social media channels.

    With the focus on positive change and knowing that we are all part of the solution, the ABA is asking that everyone pledge to change something, no matter how small, and tell them about it. The simplest way of doing this is by sharing or pledging messages from you and your pupils. Your pledges should start with: ‘change starts with ……’ #ChangeStartsWithUs #AntiBullyingWeek. This could be a text-based post, a photo, a video, a GIF or something else!

    You can also sign up as a supporter of Anti-Bullying Week where you will receive a certificate and be listed on the website.
