This free-to-download lesson pack covers content relevant to your whole class, and includes three lesson plans with accompanying activities and resources (including videos) to help you deliver engaging lessons on this important topic.

CoppaFeel! was founded in 2009 to raise awareness among young people about getting to know their bodies and the importance of detecting any unusual changes early. They work nationally to encourage young people to check their breasts and pecs regularly; know the signs and symptoms; and feel confident to act upon noticing any changes.

The school pack will support you to equip your students with:

  • essential knowledge about breast cancer
  • information on healthy lifestyle choices that may reduce a person’s risk of getting cancer
  • guidance to help them get to know their bodies
  • guidance on what to do if they find something that's not normal for them

CoppaFeel!'s School pack will support new statutory Health Education requirements to ensure students 'understand the benefits of regular self-examination' and the pack includes teacher guidance to help ensure content is delivered in a safe, confident and effective way.

“These lessons equip PSHE teachers with the necessary knowledge and information they need to deliver high quality teaching and learning about breast cancer awareness, the importance of self-checking and recognising signs and symptoms. The resource supports young people's understanding of symptoms and the confidence to act upon any changes. Lessons are well-matched to the needs of young people and enable them to demonstrate progress through engaging activities. This resource would make an excellent contribution to a high quality PSHE programme.
