PSHE primary programme kitemark for excellenceFocused on prevention not cure

Our dedicated team at 1decision are working hard to provide life changing resources for children, which are focused on prevention not cure.

The 1decision resources have been developed over the past seven years and each module has been created by PSHE and Safeguarding experts together with schools, and most importantly children, and we can proudly say we are providing resources to schools in 31 counties.

The PSHE Association awarded the 1decision modules for ages 5-8 the PSHE Quality Mark in January 2016. The new 8-11 modules are currently being assessed by the PSHE Association as part of their Quality Mark process.

PSHE expert for UK schools Hayley Sherwood creates a new PSHE programme for a UK primary school What inspired you to create the 1decision Ltd programme?
Millions of pounds are spent each year training adults to recognise safeguarding concerns amongst children. My own childhood experiences and countless life stories of others prove that this is still not enough. Our society also reminds us that PSHE still needs to improve. Social issues such as violence, drugs, crime, and obesity continue to dominate the world around us. For many years I worked in the secondary sector managing highly successful mentoring and prevention programmes.

I came to realise that earlier intervention is vital in order to make a bigger impact on society. Society is fixated on finding the cure for our problems because we can see results; when a situation appears to be solved. We must stop searching for the cure and instead realise that prevention is the key. It is essential that we give young children the confidence to speak out together with the knowledge and the skills that they need to make safe and positive choices throughout their lives. For the last four years, I have studied and worked with leading consultants, organisations, and schools to develop the most advanced resources for the subject of PSHE.

Statistics show that at least 65% of children born in the last century are predominantly visual learners (Visual Teaching Alliance, 2014) because of their significant exposure to technology. Therefore, it is essential that education provides a curriculum suited to their needs. 1decision is suited to all learning styles and has been designed to offer a unique learning experience, providing interactive videos and games. Together with activity workbooks and teaching manuals, 1decision stands out above the rest.

Visionary PSHE development for schoolsThe 1decision vision

In an ideal world, children would arrive at school socially developed and ready to learn but this is not always the case. As such, high-quality life skills education is essential for all students to reach their full potential. 1decision provides an interactive bank of resources which supports PSHE, RSE, Health education, SMSC development, and safeguarding.

Mapped to the PSHE Association’s Programme of Study, our resources help children to develop the skills needed to manage difference influences and pressures, as a part of their personal development. Our unique suite of resources allows students to experience challenging situations in a safe environment.

During their time at primary school, children will encounter many of life’s challenges for the first time. 1decision aims to provide children with the knowledge and skills needed to lead safe, healthy, and happy lives.
