PSHE - Guidance on teaching about mental health and emotional wellbeing

(0)
Our guidance on teaching about mental health and emotional wellbeing through PSHE education was originally produced under a Department for Education grant, and has been fully updated and relaunched for 2019 to match the government’s new statutory PSHE requirements regarding Health Education, Relationships Education and RSE. The guidance covers key aspects of teaching about mental health effectively and safely, including: Why it is important to teach about mental health and emotional wellbeing Key principles in teaching about mental health and emotional wellbeing safely and confidently Building teaching on mental health into a planned PSHE programme Addressing challenging mental health issues such as eating disorders, self-harm and suicide See also: Lesson plans and PowerPoints We’ve also created a FREE suite of 18 lesson plans and resources for key stages 1 to 4 — designed to be used in conjunction with the Teacher Guidance (in fact it is essential to consult the Guidance before delivering the lessons!). Topics include teaching children how to describe emotions, discuss their anxieties and worries, and develop coping strategies. Lessons aimed at key stages 3 and 4 also cover eating disorders, self-harm and depression and anxiety. The materials have been fully updated for 2019, and new PowerPoint versions published exclusively for PSHE Association members.

Our Programme of Study for PSHE education (key stages 1 - 5) identifies the key concepts, skills and attributes that are developed through PSHE education. It will help schools to fulfil their statutory responsibility to safeguard pupils, support their spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. The PSHE Programme of Study was produced in consultation with a wide variety of agencies and practitioners to meet the needs of today’s pupils and is regularly updated to meet these changing needs. The programme of study includes three core themes: 1. Health and Wellbeing 2. Relationships 3. Living in the Wider World Our Programme of Study for PSHE education is now regularly signposted by the Government as the go-to guidance for teachers and schools when planning their PSHE education curriculum. *The Government has committed to making the health education and relationships education/RSE aspects of PSHE compulsory from September 2020. See our new mapping document outlining how the Programme of Study for PSHE education covers — and goes beyond the new statutory guidance.

Our Programme of Study for PSHE education has three strands — health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world. Schools are expected to cover all three but it will be mandatory for all schools to deliver health education and relationships and sex education (or ‘relationships education’ in primaries) by 2020. With statutory status for the majority of PSHE education now confirmed, schools are beginning to review and update their curriculum accordingly. The new statutory guidance for RSE, relationships education and health education sets out what schools will be required to cover. We’ve updated our document outlining how the Programme of Study for PSHE education covers — and goes beyond — the statutory guidance.
