Parent / Carer Zone Welcome to our Parent / Carer Zone

This section of our website is designed for parents and carers of children who attend schools that are using the 1decision programme as part of their school curriculum, within their Personal, Social, Health, and Economic (PSHE) Education lessons. Below you will find an introduction to the 1decision resources and how they can support your child.

What is 1decision?

The 1decision resources have been developed over the past nine years and were created by specialists working together with schools, and most importantly, children. All our materials have received the Quality Mark from the PSHE Association, which means that schools and parents can be assured that they include the very best practice as part of a whole-school approach to keeping children safe, happy, and healthy.

The 1decision platform has been designed to be interactive, fun, and engaging for your child. At its core are a series of short film clips with alternative endings, which encourage children to consider the consequences of different decisions.

Our resources allow children to develop essential skills, knowledge, and vocabulary to manage different influences and pressures in their lives and to make safe and informed choices. Teachers and children use these films alongside pupil workbooks and on-screen lesson guides to explore various topics in a safe and supportive learning environment.

How will my child’s school use the 1decision resources?

The 1decision platform is split into modules, which are aimed at two different age-groups; 5 to 8-year olds and 8 to 11-year olds. We know that every school is different and although we provide suggested delivery advice for schools, we encourage each school to think about the needs of their communities and pupils and use the 1decision lessons in the most suitable way.

We would encourage parents and carers to speak with their schools to see how the materials are being used. This may also offer an opportunity for you to continue the learning and conversations with your child at home.

What themes does 1decision cover?

At 1decision, we are constantly updating and developing our resources to meet the changing needs of schools and children.

Our resources have recently been updated to support the new statutory teaching guidance from the Department for Education for Health Education and Relationship Education in primary schools. This guidance will be compulsory in all primary schools from September 2020. Further information on this guidance for parents and carers can be found here.

Our modules cover a variety of topics, from staying safe, staying healthy, being responsible, relationships, managing feelings and emotions, and more. The modules are all designed to complement each other and build children’s understanding in an age-appropriate way.

Our portal for 5-8-year-olds provides introductions to various topics, these help teachers and children to create the ‘building blocks’ to progress further with these topics in our 8-11 portal. To view some more samples of our resources, please click the links below.
