GambleAware primary lessons front cover

Lesson 1 – ‘Exploring risk’

The first lesson, ‘Exploring risk’, is designed for any year group in KS2 and explores pupils’ understanding and assessment of risk in a variety of situations. The lesson enables pupils to reflect on their ideas about risk and develop helpful strategies for managing when risk arises.

Lesson 2 – ‘Chancing it!'

The second, ‘Chancing it!’, is designed for Year 6 pupils and explores risk in relation to gambling. As young people are increasingly exposed to gambling and gambling-related activity (through gaming, advertising, social media, betting shops, arcades and casinos), it is important that learning about the risks associated with gambling and the effect on wellbeing is included within PSHE education.

These primary lessons lay the ground perfectly for teaching the topic in secondary schools, in which it will be a requirement to ‘teach about the risks related to online gambling including the accumulation of debt’ from September as part of statutory Health Education. Updated secondary lessons will support secondary schools to cover this topic but the extent of the issue requires preventative education to begin during primary school.


Podcast — Reducing the odds of gambling harm through PSHE

In this new episode of “PSHE talks”, Sam is joined by Subject Specialists Anne Bell and Sally Martin, and Dr Elly Hanson — an independent clinical psychologist who’s been coordinating the Association’s work researching education’s role in gambling harm prevention work. Together they discuss the wider context for this work and explore the current trends around gambling harms and young people. Our guests give their unique insight into what they believe schools should be covering on this topic and consider different ways teachers can be effective in the classroom.


‘How to’ handbook and guides

Our gambling education hub (pshe-association.org.uk/GAMBLING) also includes our practical handbook ‘How to address gambling through PSHE education’ and secondary one-page briefings — which cover a selection of key content from the handbook under four separate headings. All of the materials GambleAware have funded are free-to-download.
