Prepare for Health Education - Bounce Forward

Prepare for Health Education

Health Education along with Relationships & Sex Education becomes a statutory subject from September 2021. More importantly, perhaps, the last year has reminded us how important it is for young people to develop resilience and life skills so they are better equipped to deal with uncertainty and thrive in and beyond school.

Join a webinar on the 13th May 2021 to learn about Healthy Minds an evidenced based approach that is being implemented in secondary schools across England. Described by Lord Richard Layard, Emeritus Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics, as the ‘most ambitious life skills curriculum in the world”.


The webinar will take place on Thursday 13th May, 10.30am – 12pm.


During the webinar you will learn about the background and findings of the research project and what has happened beyond the research project. You will hear directly from secondary schools implementing Healthy Minds and students who have been taught the curriculum. The aim is to showcase Healthy Minds as a model of design and delivery that can be applied to meet the new Health Education requirements.
