Free PSHE KS4 Teaching Resources for Secondary Teachers

Resources and Support for KS4 PSHE Teachers

This is a vital time to get PSHE (or PHSE, PSE or PSHCE). Who wants to face a room full of teenagers with an under-prepared lesson on sex education or drugs? You can feel confident with the resources which are available on this page. They have been created by respected organisations, charities and companies who are experts in their field and they are linked to the national curriculum programmes of study so that they fit into most schemes of work.

NatWest MoneySense for Schools is a great site to use when making pupils aware of money, how they can use it, savings and more. There are resources to support teachers as well as resources for the pupils themselves. Videos, documents and online information can help with this topic. Managing money is an important part of everyone’s lives so knowing how to manage it sensibly is a good skill to have.

Why is PSHE important at key stage 4?

Now is the time to really make an impact on the way that young people think about their future. Whether it’s staying safe through healthy eating, active lifestyles or safe sex, or dealing with peer pressure and saying no to drugs and alcohol, young people need guidance from adults and good, sound lessons grounded in facts and real life scenarios. Use the downloadable, printable resources from the sites, or link to their interactive online resources to really get the students engaged with the topics.

Now is also the time to really get them geared up for their future career planning, with careers education, enterprise activities and thinking about how they can reach their personal goals, whether that is through exams and college, or getting into the world of work. There is a lot to think about in KS4 PSHE, so make sure that you are getting all the help and support you need by using the free teaching resources and lesson plans on this page.
