Mentor-ADEPIS Lesson Plans

This series of lesson plans aim to provide a specific but flexible pathway to enable children to consider ways to develop resilience, reducing risk-taking and considering safer options.

The current Ofsted framework (as from September 2015) expects the curriculum to contribute to pupils’ Personal Development, Behaviour & Welfare.

The Outstanding grade descriptors include:

  • Pupils can explain accurately and confidently how to keep themselves healthy.
  • They make informed choices about healthy eating, fitness and their emotional and mental well-being.

The following series of lessons can contribute strongly to this.
