Brand New Features in 2020
PSHE News is evolving
PSHE is a subject that can no longer be ignored by any teaching professional
Firstly, a huge thank you to the thousands of teachers who have supported us over the years, but just like the subject itself, we too must evolve and become more inclusive if we really want to make further impacts on education.
When we say PSHE News is evolving, we don't say it lightly, because in 2019 we put you in control of our productions. You will have a say in what we make, be able to comment and make suggestions as the resources develop. You will be able to follow the production stages of each video and get a better understanding of the rationale behind the final product. You will also be able to debate and comment on the twists and turns as the resources develop. This will be the most interactive PSHE resource ever!
PSHE has formed the backbone of all our work, and in Teacher Central we continue with this philosophy. We believe that if a young learner is happy with their place in this world and has a better understanding of their emotional needs, then their potential for learning increases exponentially.
A subject which was once considered an 'add-on' to the curriculum, now runs through its every vein which is why PSHE cannot be ignored no matter what age your pupils, or what subject you teach. With the government now putting such a focus on this subject and at last recognising its value, it is absolutely essential that everyone gets an informed background to how this subject can be made inclusive to every subject.
In Teacher Central you will still get access to the PSHE Achievement Awards which are presented to organisations who show a focus on their PSHE responsibilities in a creative and committed way.
We will visit schools and share with you their initiatives to get a balanced view of how other schools are implementing their responsibilities to bring PSHE to the forefront of their curriculum activities.
You will be able to access free resources like ‘Baby’ a short documentary that creates a route map for young people when considering having a child and the impacts of such a decision.
Access documentaries that address international issues that until now were hidden and only whispered about. With cultural integration now being a major part of our communities, we can no longer hide from such urgent matters.
From theatre-in-education to drama based resources we will continue to bring you originally scripted drama that brings the issues we face today right into the classroom with a relevance that young people will appreciate and engage with.
Our ethos from the very beginning was always to introduce humour to make sensitive subjects more easily managed. We will continue to bring you engaging and informative resources in a whole range of media formats to help with their delivery.

Our Commitment to you...
As we continue to develop Teacher Central into a more encompassing resource, we give you our commitment, to continue promoting PSHE awareness and developing resources to support a subject which we believe is essential to every young person as they find their place in the world whether that be practical, emotional or spiritual.
PSHE is no longer a subject that can be ignored and has become a vital part of a young learner's education when it is integrated into the curriculum successfully. Within the government's new white paper and commitment to PSHE in schools, it highlights the now statutory requirements which we will continue to support:
Relationships education in primary schools
Relationships and sex education in secondary schools
PSHE in all schools
