80% of primary aged children have been on a diet. 75% of 10- to 11-year-olds would like to change their appearance. Children as young as 6 are worrying about their shape and size. Body image is an important aspect of children’s self-esteem and confidence. Unfortunately, many young children are suffering from anxieties about their appearance, which has a harmful effect on their overall mental health and wellbeing. This updated second edition of the award-winning Body Image in the Primary School recognises these anxieties as a concern for younger children that needs to be addressed at an early age, and examines some of the pressures that young people face. Presenting a clear, easy-to-use scheme of work to support emotional literacy and Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE), throughout the primary school and into the first years of secondary school, this new edition offers: A practical evidence based curriculum for children aged 4 –13. More than 60 lively, varied and detailed lesson plans. Additional lessons on gender, social media and the selfie culture. An overview of research on the links between body image, academic achievement and emotional wellbeing. The evidence-based lessons in Body Image in the Primary School have been awarded the quality kitemark by the PSHE Association and highlighted by Ofsted as an example of excellent practice. This book will be of significant interest to all teachers, teaching assistants and practitioners working with primary aged children.

This handbook provides the Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) co-ordinator in a school with everything that they need to deliver good practice in this subject. The book contains thorough guidance through policy and required practice and has a strongly practical bias. It shows through examples of good practice what can be achieved and how this can generally help to raise standards in schools. This is a topical, lively and up-to-date book which tackles the real issues facing schools, heads, co-ordinators and classroom teachers in an engaging and practical manner. It quotes from examples and case studies where strategies worked, and failed - but also keeps the learning of the pupil as the focus of all activities. The PSHE Co-ordinators Handbook is what every Head and PSHE co-ordinator needs to help them make practical sense of the new curriculum, the new PSHE, the new healthy school standard, social inclusion, citizenship, school councils, and the new Ofsted requirements - and how these can be woven together in a coherent way to support the raising of academic standards.

'This book is encouraging, easy to read and full of inspirational ideas about how to introduce different topics for discussion. Methods to encourage and develop group dynamics are clearly outlined. For any secondary school considering introducing circle time, this book makes a good case in its favour' - Youth in Mind Includes CD-Rom The circle time teaching strategy is used extensively and successfully in primary schools, but secondary settings often find it difficult to implement. In this book, the authors advise on how a circle time programme can be developed in secondary schools, involving both staff and students. Drawing on their experience of using circle time to deliver the PSHE and Citizenship curricula, they present a framework that that can be followed or adapted by other secondary schools. The development includes: - consultation with students - choosing the topics for the programme of study - lesson plans written in the circle format - recommendation for links within the wider school community and other agencies. A CD-rom is included, providing lesson plans, circle time games, and advice on inclusion, group work and strategies and approaches suitable for the secondary setting. The book also shows how the programme can be evaluated, taking into account the perspectives of the trainer, the staff and the students. Any secondary school practitioner looking to implement a circle time programme in their school will find this a useful and practical resource. Marilyn Tew is a freelance consultant, trainer and facilitator, specialising in the relevance of group work, emotional literacy and Circle Time to PSHE. Hilary Potter is currently researching in the field of emotional literacy and has extensive experience of teaching and training across a range of educational settings. Mary Read has taught for over 25 years as well as writing and working as a trainer nationally.

In addition to chapters on classroom organisation, the book includes chapters on: child development creativity PSHE and citizenship teaching language and literacy, ICT, mathematics and science the foundation subjects working with parents working effectively with Teaching Assistants evaluating and assessing learning teaching children with special educational needs or exceptional ability.
