External Agencies and RSE
Schools are receiving many offers of help with RSE delivery from a range of
organisations and individuals. Some of these may be familiar but others will be new.
How is a school to know what would be suitable for its pupils and whether the input offered will be in line with its approach to RSE? This guide aims to help schools consider how external agencies can best contribute to Relationships and Sex Education (RSE). It is also relevant to RSHE and broader PSHE education.
Better Health - Every Mind Matters
Public Health England are launching the Better Health - Every Mind Matters campaign to support the nation’s mental wellbeing with the encouragement that “When things aren’t so good out there, make inside feel better”. Aimed at adults, but weighted towards those most at risk of mental health problems, this “Make Inside Feel Better” 2021 phase of the campaign will run across PR, radio, social and digital. The key message will be to encourage people to create a free NHS-approved ‘Mind Plan’.
PSHE - lessons on loss and bereavement
On average, 1 in every 29 children will be bereaved of a parent — the equivalent of one in every class — and many more children will experience the death of another family member or friend. These lesson plans provide the opportunity to take a sensitive approach to learning about bereavement in the classroom. They will support children and young people to develop the skills and understanding they need to deal with this particular life event.
The free resource packs include a teacher guidance document along with a lesson plan and PowerPoint for each lesson.
5 Ways to support our mental health while teaching from home
- Detox digitally: Try to find time in your day to unwind from digital appliances, giving your eyes, head and brain a chance to detox from the constant speed of media content. It is good for your health and wellbeing to switch of all devices one hour before bedtime each evening.
- Set good Boundaries Aim to keep your workspace, recreation space and sleep space and times separate to help distinguish between work, home life and rest. Make a conscious effort as you walk into your work space and also leave it at the end of the day.
- Find new ways to connect? Try setting yourself small tasks, rewards or challenges throughout the working week. Make small changes to your daily walk, change the route or try a different activity or hobby in the evening that you haven’t tried before. Keeping your mind enquiring and engaging in finding new things can ease the current pressures and support your mental health.
