Life Education Lancashire is coming to our school next Thursday and Friday. You may remember them in the past arriving in a special Life Education Van, however sessions now take place in classrooms.
Coram Life Education is the leading provider of relationships, health, wellbeing, and drugs education to almost half a million children across the UK, delivered under the strapline ‘Helping Children Make Healthy Choices’.
Life Education Lancashire is a delivery partner of Coram Life Education and provides unique health and drug education programmes teaching children about the wonder of their bodies, how to take care of them, and how drugs (including medicines, alcohol and tobacco) can affect them. Looking after our mental health is also explored and children discuss strategies for self-care.
Children meet Healthy Harold, their giraffe puppet mascot, and his friends, have discussions and watch short films about healthy eating, legal and illegal drugs and their effects, the body and friendships and their influence, and how choices and behaviours can affect dreams and aspirations.
Trained Educators use evidence-based, interactive, creative methods to deliver memorable, informative and age appropriate sessions which assists our school in our work around PSHE (Personal Social and Health Education) and Relationships and Health Education. All programmes support the new DfE statutory requirements for PSHE and are aligned with the National Curriculum.
