Hello, it's nice to meet you!

Who we are

Welcome to the School Zone, where you'll find curriculum-linked resources and inspiration from Change4Life for primary teachers, and PSHE Association-accredited lesson plans from Rise Above for secondary teachers and primary year 6 teachers.

Public Health England is dedicated to providing quality resources and classroom ideas for primary and secondary schools. Our flexible, teacher-approved worksheets, activities and teaching resources will help you teach a range of topics from key stage 1 and 2,  including healthy eating and being active.

For key stage 3 and 4, our flexible PSHE Association-accredited lesson plans provide 5-minute activities to a full 60-minute lesson on topics like smoking, online stress and fear of missing out (FOMO), body image in a digital world, and exam stress.

We'd love to hear from you and find out what you think about the School Zone and our resources. Send your feedback, photos or stories about any Change4Life or Rise Above activities your school has been involved in to partnerships@phe.gov.uk.


Change4Life is Public Health England's response to the rise in obesity. Its consumer campaigns encourage families with children aged 3 to 11 to eat well, move more, and live longer. The Change4Life teaching resources include curriculum-linked lesson plans, pupil-led campaigns, whole-school activities, and information designed to help you teach children to eat healthily and move more.

Rise Above

Rise Above is a campaign and website created to improve the resilience of young people and delay or prevent them exploring risky behaviours like smoking, drinking alcohol, or taking drugs. The Rise Above lesson plans are curriculum linked and have been accredited by the PSHE Association.

Our aim is to support teachers in delivering lessons to engage young people on a variety of key health issues, including bullying and cyberbullying, online stress, and exam stress.

The lesson plans are designed to help teachers encourage discussion among students on a range of sensitive issues – perhaps on topics they may not be very familiar with or find challenging to broach in the classroom. Further lesson plans will become available later this academic year.
