Online Facts4Life Key Stage 3 ‘Mental Health Resources’ Training
Date: Tuesday 12th October 2021
Trainers: John Davis (Director, F4L) & Di Harrill (Lead Secondary Trainer, F4L)
We are announcing a free online course for Secondary teachers in Gloucestershire to help young people manage their mental health in these challenging times. This invitation is extended to one or more teachers from your school previously trained in the Facts4Life approach to health resilience. Please book early as numbers will be limited to ensure participants have every opportunity to interact during the training session.
The course will help you to:
- Refresh your understanding of the Facts4Life approach to building health resilience
- Develop a language to talk about mental health with children
- Build confidence in incorporating the simple messages of brain science into the classroom to regulate emotions
- Fully utilise the Facts4Life Core and Mental Health materials
What does Facts4Life do for schools?
- complements key elements of the PSHE curriculum including the new statutory guidance on Health Education
- helps to create a climate for physical and mental health issues to be addressed
- facilitates openness about safeguarding by promoting coping strategies to manage risk
- promotes good attendance
- encourages participation in physical activity and addresses diet and healthy weight
- supports schools in the Ofsted judgement on Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare
“The curriculum and the provider’s wider work supports learners to develop their character – including their resilience, confidence, and independence – and helps them to know how to keep physically and mentally healthy”
Facts4Life in the Curriculum:
We are funded by NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group and our resources, training and follow-up support are therefore free to Gloucestershire schools. Our resources are designed to help young people navigate the range of challenges they face in life – to ‘ride the ups and downs’ of health. The modules can be delivered flexibly within an hour’s PSHE lesson or within tutor time, either across a single term or within a spiral PSHE curriculum over the key stage. Themes include chance and choice, personal responsibility and recognition of the range of normality. They provide an overarching framework through which the PINK curriculum can be delivered.
