The Home Office's Disrespect NoBody PSHE education teaching materials are designed to support the government's campaign to prevent abusive behaviours within young people's relationships.
The Home Office has worked with the PSHE Association to develop the materials, which are available to download for free.
The resources include two discussion guides (one for those working with eight to 12-year-olds, and one for those working with 16 to 18-year-olds) as well as three lesson plans covering relationship abuse, consent and sexting. Slide templates and interactive classroom activities are also available.
These teaching materials can be easily integrated into your PSHE education programme and are designed to help pupils to understand and maintain healthy relationships while learning about consent and challenging controlling behaviour, violence and abuse. The resources also focus on developing key skills and attributes intrinsic to healthy relationships, such as empathy, respect, communication and negotiation.
You can also email the campaign's team to access other resources to support the campaign, including resources for LGBT young people, and order up to 10 copies of a DVD containing the campaign adverts to use alongside the teaching materials.
PSHE Association Chief Executive Jonathan Baggaley said: “We were delighted to work with the Home Office to update their excellent Disrespect NoBody resources for 2018. Relationships education is a core strand of PSHE and Disrespect NoBody will support PSHE education teachers to integrate learning about healthy and unhealthy relationships within their planned curriculum.”
