In this EmpowerEd session hosted by Lucy from Headteacher Chat, Hayley Sherwood, CEO of 1decision, discussed the features and benefits of the 1decision platform, designed to enhance the primary PSHE and RSHE curriculum. The session focused on how the platform helps teachers save time by providing a wealth of resources and how it addresses the expanding areas of the curriculum, including mental health and cultural capital.
Key highlights from the session include:
- Early Years Resources: The platform offers animations, stories, games, and mindfulness activities based on the Rainbow Drops characters, designed to build blocks for PSHE at the primary level.
- Primary Resources: 1decision features videos with alternative endings, allowing children to engage actively in the learning process. These include real-life ending videos, animations, and documentaries covering over 80 topics.
- Assessment and Training: The platform includes built-in assessments, knowledge organisers, and a teacher portal with various supporting documents. There's also a whole school training area with modules for teaching staff and SLT.
- Personal Development Quiz: A new feature that assesses children’s knowledge in 12 areas of personal development, providing both individual and class-wide data.
- Additional Support: The platform offers resources for nurture groups and assemblies, and is working on resources for parents.
Hayley emphasized the importance of PSHE in shaping responsible and informed individuals in society. The session also covered how 1decision keeps up with educational standards and changes, such as the RSHE review by the Department of Education.
