Healthy Belonging – A module for Primary Schools

Building knowledge, skills and attitudes in healthy ways to belong – A PSHE curriculum enrichment for Year 6 Children. Spring 2024.

The Healthy Belonging module has been designed in response to enquiries from many schools about a resource to support primary teachers address the risk of county lines and knife crime in an age-appropriate way.  

The module has been commissioned by Cambridge City Council, on behalf of the Community Safety Partnership, and the Office of Police and Crime Commissioner and has been developed by the PSHE Service in collaboration with Cambridge City Council, Cambridgeshire County Council’s Partnership Strategic Lead and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Safeguarding Board, Healthy Schools and Rewise Learning.

It comprises of three ready to deliver presentations, each with a Teacher Guide to support the PSHE curriculum for Y6 pupils.

The focus of each part of the module is as follows:

Part 1:  Identifying characteristics of healthy friendships

Part 2:  Identifying coercive behaviours often linked to county lines

Part 3:  Identifying behaviours and resisting pressure to carry a knife.

All the lesson activities and resources adhere to good practice PSHE principles which encourage the exploration of characters and themes through discussion and animation.

The recommendation is for the three sessions to be delivered consecutively during the Summer Term to complete the teaching on Healthy Relationships.
