A Resilience-based PSHE Curriculum for Secondary Schools

The skills young people need to thrive
As surveys show, emotional health in children is worsening, and their behavioural problems are increasing.
More and more we worry about the mental health of our children. These are problems that schools can influence. That schools do influence! Schools make almost as much difference to the emotional health and behaviour of their students as to their academic achievement.
Teaching wellbeing, might be easier than it seems.
While young people’s life skills are strongly influenced by the ethos of the school, there also needs to be at least one hour a week of dedicated and specific teaching of life skills. In order to do this well, teachers need to be trained in a fully professional way.
