PSHE teacher toolkits: for all learners
Turn your students into Dementia Friends by teaching about dementia in the classroom with our PSHE-accredited teacher toolkits
Our PSHE-accredited resources help schools tackle common misconceptions about dementia.
There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to over 1 million by 2025. By working through the activities in our toolkits your classes will learn more about the condition and how it affects the brain. They will also how to support people living with or affected by dementia.
Who are these toolkits for?
We have toolkits for teachers and children at each key stage group. Our resources contribute towards key aspects of the national curriculum, enabling pupils to gain knowledge and understanding linked to PSHE & Citizenship.
Whether you embed them within a spiral curriculum or as part of an enrichment day, the activities can also support work towards British Values, SMSC and Personal Development, behaviour and welfare. No prior knowledge about dementia is needed to teach with these toolkits.
This resource will cover:
- Understanding the brain
- Dementia in the family and the role of carers
- Dementia in the community
Once your classes complete their toolkit let us know so we can recognise your students as Dementia Friends. We’ll also send them each a badge and action card!
These teaching packs are available in English, Welsh and Irish languages.
