Youth Track for Schools
Designed to work within a PSHE context, the three hour-long sessions are accessible for any teacher to deliver, and any student to engage with. It’s suited best for those aged between 11-14 at KS3 but can be adapted to suit older secondary-age pupils. Meeting the PSHE Association’s 10 Principles of Effective Education, as well as covering a range of objectives within its programme of study, this resource enables teachers to deliver relevant, forward-facing sessions that would complement a whole-school approach to PSHE.

We recognise that teachers throughout secondary schools are consistently asked to take on pastoral topics, often without prior training.

Eating disorders are present in every school, and need to be addressed by every school.
