Describes how the author’s school, which already placed a significant emphasis on encouraging children to value themselves, decided to devote 20 per cent of curriculum time (released as a result of the introduction of the slimmed‐down National Curriculum) to a wide‐ranging health education programme. The school decided on a three‐year rolling programme in which planning and staff training could take place in the term preceding implementation of the suggested work. This would also allow staff to reflect on what had been achieved to date, thus modifying the next stage of the implementation. Outlines topics in three broad categories of the health education curriculum, and discusses ways in which one topic ‐ peer group pressure ‐ is tackled at Key Stage1.
