PSHE Scheme of Work KS4

We are offering a suite of PSHE (personal, social, health and economic education) learning resources to schools and other educational settings.

Our learning resources serve two functions:

  1. To encourage young people to recognise the benefits to their health of being physically active – particularly their mental health.
  2. To support teachers to deliver high-quality PSHE lessons that cover all aspects of the DfE statutory guidance on Health Education.

We have assembled a set of easy-to-use lesson plans and activities that can be used for most KS4 students. The suite of resources comprises:

  • A set of twelve lesson plans and resources for Year 10 and Year 11 students (KS4)
  • A guide for PSHE Leads and PSHE teachers/facilitators, including top tips for delivery
  • A pack of useful documents (national guidance)

KS3 and KS2 coming soon…..

To access this resource please email [email protected]

Depending on demand, we can also visit during your delivery of the PHSE lesson plans to talk about Sport in Mind and the benefits of being active for your mental health.


These programmes are supported by the Mr. Crocombe Legacy

Virtual Work Experience

Sport in Mind are offering the opportunity for colleges to work directly with us on a Virtual Work Experience placement. This placement is conducted entirely remotely, and offers the opportunity for students to plan, promote, market, and deliver a session aimed at helping people who are experiencing mental health problems. 

This is an engaging student-lead course which allows students to be creative, inventive , and take ownership over their work. This is a brilliant course to help students learn more about the positive impact that physical activity can have on mental health - and to start thinking differently about how to plan and execute sport and exercise sessions for a more diverse range of people.
