Our Approach

A whole-school approach to RSHE that supports a healthy school culture


  • Discussion Based
    Life Lessons works on a “Watch” “Discuss” and “Do” model which allows teachers to facilitate the discussion
  • Relatable
    We put young people at the heart of RSHE and encourage learners to interact with the material and relate it back to their own lives and experiences
  • Inclusive
    The Life Lessons video library models openness to your pupils and provides positive role models to reflect the diversity of young people

Behaviour tools

Behaviour Interventions

Staff should feel supported to deliver a meaningful intervention when harmful behaviour occurs. Life Lessons has worked with behavioural experts to develop targeted intervention packs that can fit into a school’s existing behaviour policy. 

  • Packs include:

  • Reflective conversation framework
  • SEND consideration with comic storyboarding to aid reflection
  • Simple presentations that cover common harmful behaviours including misogyny, racism and disrespect and bullying
  • Independent reflection follow-up, ideal for internal exclusion work
Evaluation Tools

Impact Evaluation

Do students value RSHE lessons? Do they feel safe in school? What do they say that they want to learn? Do staff feel confident?

Access a simple set of flexible survey tools to support planning and evaluation.

  • Packs include:

  • RSHE audit survey for staff
  • RSHE audit survey for students
