“If the world is going to be saved, teach the children!”

“I met Hayley on 22nd May last year, I was spell bound for some 2 hours! And that, coming from a reasonably hardened business adviser and professional accountant of 45 years, says something!

Hayley talked about her experiences with `lost` children, teenagers and young twenties. She talked about the range of problems all of them had from abuse, drugs and alcohol.

Hayley talked with a passion and vehemence about how they are being failed by the `system’ and how she was trying to help and care.

Education to encourage a Safer Generation

Herts Fire Service and 1decision

During their time at primary school, children will encounter many of life’s challenges for the first time. To help keep them safe and healthy it is important that they develop the correct skills to manage different influences and pressures that they may be presented with. It is essential that children understand that their choices can lead to different consequences or outcomes.

“PSHE Education is the answer” says Hayley Sherwood

Founder and CEO Hayley Sherwood

We live in a world where everybody is searching for the cure. The cure for addiction, obesity, repeat offending, a cure for the rise in unemployment, domestic violence etc. The reason why there is such commitment to finding cures is because you can see results when a situation appears to be fixed but it is time for change, prevention is the key.

“I applaud the thought and hard work that has gone into producing this very relevant and comprehensive resource. The videos, associated activities, and high production values make this a ‘must have’ resource for use in schools to support the teaching of being safe within a comprehensive PSHE programme. I particularly like the innovative alternative ending to the video stories which will clearly make children think about their own and others’ behaviour.

Tonya Meers – Chief Storyteller at Little Creative Days – shares her thoughts on PSHE

Tonya Meers

“Teaching PSHE subjects through storytelling has many benefits and reinforces the learning” says Tonya Meers of Little Creative Days.

Everyone loves a good story and children are natural storytellers so why not capitalise on that as an interesting way to teach many of the areas in PSHE?
