Many of our guidance documents, podcasts and articles on our coronavirus support hub here are free to download by everyone but lesson materials and planning tools are generally exclusively available to PSHE Association members. We make this distinction as we are an independent, non-profit membership organisation and membership fees are what allow us to carry on producing resources, guidance, training and one-to-one support, and campaign nationally on your behalf.
We work very hard to ensure PSHE Association membership represents great value for money and very much appreciate all of you who are part of our growing national community. Member schools are, however, allowed and encouraged to share member-only home-learning resources with their pupils and their parents to support PSHE education at home during this time (though by email or secure portal rather than uploading with open access on the school website).
