Protective Behaviours - Keeping Myself Safe

'Keeping Myself Safe' is based on the Protective Behaviours programme and is a school-based resource designed to teach KS1 and Upper KS2 children:

  • that they all have the right to be safe all the time
  • how to recognise situations where they do not feel safe
  • how to manage unsafe situations
  • how to recognise their network of support

The resource can be used alongside other GHLL resources to help schools deliver elements of the PinK Curriculum, and in particular the ‘Developing Risk Management’ theme at both KS1 and KS2.

PinK/GHLL Review Workshop

GHLL Review

Are you new to this or is your accreditation up for renewal?

In order to gain the Gloucestershire Healthy Schools or the Gloucestershire Healthy FE accreditation, you need to complete a Review, which we have designed with a view to minimising the bureaucracy previously associated with the national Healthy Schools reporting forms.

It is intended to help you capture the essence of what it means for your school to be a Healthy School, or your college to have a Healthy FE accreditation. Primarily, it's a self-assessment checklist enabling you to celebrate what's working well and to identify areas where you might want to take some action.

This session will be lead by GHLL Lead Teachers to give you practical support in this area.

Creating Positive Playtimes - Primary Focus

                     This interactive CPD session shares the implementation, and outcomes, of GHLL’s positive playtimes practice. With the introduction of zoned playgrounds, that directly link to the ‘5 ways of wellbeing’, incidents of isolation and poor behaviour have dropped dramatically. These zones not only provide a wellbeing boost for all pupils, but also through planning with the midday supervisors, enable more vulnerable pupils to get targeted boosts in their specific areas of need. This Positive Playgrounds practice not only gives schools the tools to target pupils who need wellbeing boosts, but also shares what wellbeing is, why it is important and how to assess the wellbeing impact you currently have on your pupils.

Get ready to connect, be active, know yourselves, learn something new and give your time!

Stonewall Primary Training

Find out more about the prevalence and impact of homophobic, bi-phobic and transphobic bullying in schools, as well as ways that you can prevent and tackle it in your setting.

Bullying has a severe impact on the well-being, attainment and aspirations of LGBT students. Seven out of ten students who have experienced homophobic bullying say it has had an impact on their schoolwork; half say they have skipped school to avoid bullies. In some cases, the exclusion of LGBT people from the curriculum, and the reinforcement of negative messages around sexual orientation and gender identity, can severely affect self esteem.

  • Learn practical techniques to train other staff in your school on how to tackle homophobic, bi-phobic and transphobic bullying, and celebrate difference.

  • Practical ways to support lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans young people.

  • Gain an overview of the current state of homophobic, bi-phobic and transphobic bullying and its impact on pupil achievement and school performance.

  • Find out how to meet your Ofsted and legal requirements under the Equality Act 2010.
