PHE launches Rise Above for Schools programme

15 Sep 2017 UK SIC

Public Health England (PHE) has a new set of Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) resources, called Rise Above for Schools, to support secondary school teachers when promoting positive health, wellbeing and resilience among young people aged 11 to 16.

These lessons plans are to help secondary school teachers engage pupils with coping strategies for a variety of health and well-being issues, including the pressures they face online.

All Rise Above for Schools resources have been developed in collaboration with teachers and the PSHE Association. The resources have also received the PSHE Association’s Quality Mark. The resources include a range of techniques for teachers to employ to enable pupils to safely learn, explore and discuss coping strategies for dealing with issues, such as:

  • bullying and cyberbullying
  • alcohol use and smoking
  • positive relationships and friendships
  • exam stress
  • online and social media stress
  • body image in a digital world

Rise Above for Schools hosts exclusive content from key influencers including vloggers, Instagram stars, musicians, gamers and TV presenters. The audience of 11 to 16 year-olds co-created films, interactive videos, animations, quizzes and more on topics that really matter to them, such as social media, body image and online stress.
