We hope you and your loved ones are getting by in these challenging and unsettling times. We are now working remotely but are adapting well, and we're in a strong position to support you, your school and your pupils, now and into the future. We’re still at the end of a call or email should you need us and have created this hub to help you to provide high quality PSHE, both to pupils still in school or to those being taught remotely. We will continue to build on it until things return to normal. We are also busy planning training webinars and other solutions to give you support you need, when you need it.
