Healthy Minds - Bounce Forward

Healthy Minds

Healthy Minds delivers the Health and Relationship and Sex Education programme of study for schools. It brings together years of research, evidence of what works in schools and feedback from students. We know schools’ want to focus on emotional health and behaviour, as well as academic achievement, and Healthy Minds delivers.

Healthy Minds is made up of individual elements that together provide a five year timetable of lessons covering topics such as emotional resilience, mental health, social media, mindfulness, career hope and human connection.

Starting as a research project by the London School of Economics, Healthy Minds was funded by the Education Endowment Foundation and trialled in 34 schools over 5 years by Bounce Forward. We brought all that learning together and worked with teachers, senior leaders and professional to able to make this exciting package available to all schools.

“The extensive training results in very well trained, confident and engaged staff who have experienced first hand and fully understand the opportunities presented by the different activities and lessons. Students have had a very positive experience and value the lessons greatly. We now have a clear structure to our PSHE programme, but the emphasis on developing life skills through exploring experiences and scenarios, has contributed to our work in developing resilient, robust and well-balanced individuals ready to make a positive contribution to the school and society.”
