Life Education Nottinghamshire reach: 12,212 children in 97 schools (2019-2020)

We are a specialist charity provider of high quality health, well-being and drug prevention education working with primary schools across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire. Our aim is to equip young people with the knowledge, skills and confidence to make choices that will help them to live healthier, happier lives.

We are a delivery partner of Coram Life Education, the UK’s leading health and drug education organisation. Bringing health and well-being learning to life, we’ve been delivering health and drug education programmes in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire for over 20 years, and to over 300 schools. Our regularly updated programmes have been created by child development experts to be stimuli-rich and interactive, and through puppetry, role play, and film clips we capture children’s imaginations and develop critical thinking and risk management skills.

Our core programmes for children

Our programmes are delivered by LifeSpace, where Educators go into classroom school bubbles, equipped with interactive educational resources that support children’s learning.

Engaging Parents and Carers.

We also offer a variety of four to eight week courses for parents/carers and their children (Family SEAL Primary and Transition) and courses just for parents/carers and grandparents focusing on Parenting skills, covering issues such as behaviour management, health and wellbeing, and managing stress.

“Behaviour and Safety Workshops” are a set of three inset programmes focusing on issues such as increasing good behaviour, reducing conflict and tackling bullying in schools. These sessions have proved particularly popular with Lunchtime Supervisors and Teaching Assistants. The sessions take place on your school site, last about 90 minutes and can take place at a time to suit your school.
