Lost For Words

ADVICE FOR CHILDREN ABOUT HOW TO COPE WITH GRIEF - aims to help young people through grief.

The book is made up of quotes, advice and corresponding emojis crowd sourced exclusively from children bereaved from birth to late teenage years.

In line with our COVID-19 contingency planning and the latest Government guidance, we have suspended all of our face to face meetings and  training events and have moved all our services to remote or digital delivery.

We are regularly updating the GHLL website including a new tab

Supporting PSHE education leads and teachers working with pupils with special educational needs and disability (SEND) in both special and mainstream settings is a key part of our work. We are therefore delighted to launch this fully updated version of the PSHE Association Planning Framework for Pupils with SEND.

All schools are required to teach the majority of PSHE education from September 2020. This includes Relationships Education at key stages 1 and 2,Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) at key stages 3 and 4, and Health Education in both primary and secondary phases. This latest version of our Framework accompanies the 2020 edition of the PSHE Association Programme of Study for PSHE education and is fully aligned with the Statutory Guidance for Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education from the Department for Education (DfE). We have mapped the content grids from this statutory guidance to the Planning Framework, and adapted learning outcomes appropriately in cases where statutory content may not be accessible for pupils with SEND.

e-Bug Health Educator Training

  Free e-learning for educators and members of the community who teach children and young people.

The course aims to improve knowledge and confidence to teach children and young people about microbes, preventing the spread of infection and antibiotic use in an engaging and age-appropriate way. The course can be used to support parents, carers and educators to teach children using the e-Bug resources during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Online Safety At Home: Gaming

Online gaming can offer many positive experiences. It can give children and young people the chance to escape into a virtual world, to learn, and to connect with others.

However, there is a risk of children and young people viewing inappropriate content in games and being contacted by adults seeking to exploit them.

This week your activity pack for parents and carers to deliver to their children explores how they can stay safe while gaming:
