SWITCHED ON is designed to be used within a planned, developmental approach to PSHE and offers teachers the educational structure to deliver engaging PSHE lessons on key curriculum topics.
Viral by Nessah Muthy is written to spark conversation and develop understanding around consent. The protagonist, Paige, is 15 years old and is experiencing conflicting feelings around intimacy within her new relationship. This programme of study introduces the audio play launching a basic exploration of consent. The exercises in this toolkit guide students to explore their own solutions to some of life’s harder questions in a safe and responsible way.
