PSHE, Student Wellbeing and Covid

Brand new, PSHE and health and wellbeing materials from Chameleon PDE


ChameleonWe’ve heard about schools who are very concerned about the mental health of their pupils but, due to the current Covid crisis, are struggling to timetable enough PSHE to meet student need.

Our friends at Chameleon PDE have come up with a solution. They have been busy developing new PSHE / Health and wellbeing materials for secondary schools which include a range of activities that can be delivered in 10, 20, or 30-minute sections, ideal for tutor delivery or for restricted lesson times. If lessons are longer, activities can be combined, fitting with any lesson length.

One of the many benefits of using Chameleon resources are their PSHE / WELLBEING HOME LEARNING materials.

Chameleon Home LearningPupils who are at home due to Covid restrictions also don’t have to miss out on their PSHE / health and wellbeing lessons. Chameleon PDE’s Home Learning resources have been written carefully so that content is appropriate, leaving more the sensitive areas to be taught and discussed in school by teachers during contact time.

This can ensure students are receiving a full and potentially an enhanced programme, even though time in school may be restricted.

Chameleon have also produced a teaching pack with over 60 hours of teaching material specifically focussed on Covid-19 that can be used for personal development lessons in school.

You can sign up for a free account, download samples and find out more here

We very much hope that you will take a look at Chameleon PDE and find their offering both helpful and affordable in these challenging times.

PVW 2020 3After a record-breaking 2019, with over 300,000 pupils joining, tootoot’s Pupil Voice Week is back and bigger than ever.

Running from the 21st – 25th September, this year’s Pupil Voice Week has more partners and free resources than ever before to help schools celebrate.

This year’s theme is ‘it’s good to talk’. We’ll be promoting the wellbeing of people of all ages in education. We believe that through opening up and talking more about our own mental health, we can create a healthier school community.

We want every child to know that it’s good to talk about emotions, mental health and wellbeing. The week is all about empowering young people to speak-up and use their voice. With the help of our partners we have specially designed resources that explore topics such as emotional wellbeing, mental health, how they can use their voices for good and anti-bullying.

Your Free Resource Pack
Receive your free support and resources by signing up at pupilvoiceweek.co.uk/register/school, and join the celebration on social media from the 21st – 25thSeptember using #PupilVoiceWeek and tag @tootootofficial.

Childnet 2020 Film Competition

Childnet Film Competition launched to celebrate Safer Internet Day


The 11th annual Childnet Film Competition is open to all schools and youth organisations across the UK. This year Childnet, a UKSIC partner, is inviting young people aged 7-11 to take on the challenge of creating a short film in response to this year’s theme:

We want an internet where we’re free to…

Last year saw over 120 entries into the competition, and this year we can’t wait to see the films that the young people produce.

Once again Childnet is looking for films that have a clear message about the positive ways young people can use the internet. The challenge for young people is to create a film that tells us what they want from a future internet and what they believe people should be free to be online.

By taking part, young people not only create a film that can educate their peers about how they can stay safe online, the three selected finalists from both the primary and secondary age category will be invited to a private screening at London’s British Film Institute. They will then be presented with great prizes for their school or youth organisation by our prestigious judging panel.

Entering the competition:


There are 4 simple steps to enter:

  1. Select the category that you wish to enter on the Film Competition Page. Choose either primary or secondary depending in the age of the young people you work with.
  2. Download the competition pack, which contains everything you will need, including education resource, film advice and supporting educator guidance.
  3. Allow time for young people to plan and create their films.
  4. Submit your film and all consent forms by 3rd June.

Details for submitting films can be found within the packs or on the FAQs page.

Find out more at childnet.com/film-competition

The Film Competition is delivered as part of Childnet’s work in the UK Safer internet Centre, with additional support from the Motion Picture Association and Disney.
