For Key Stages 3 and 4 PSHE and Citizenship students

The Feel Good Factor provides a range of materials which can be used in your school’s PSHE planning, and in Citizenship lessons. The information is aimed primarily at Key Stage 4 students but could be adapted for Key Stage 3.

Each section provides a page of information accompanied by activities and a Worksheet, for use in the classroom or as homework. Sections can be used individually, or linked together to form a programme of lessons on teen issues.

The Feel Good Factor themes are wide ranging and provide thought-provoking materials to stimulate further research and debate. Discussion topics include:

  • adolescence
  • making choices
  • the world of work
  • rights and responsibilities
  • safety
  • planning for the future
  • awareness of the world.

The Citizenship Curriculum aims to develop successful, confident and responsible young citizens. The Feel Good Factor gives students an opportunity to reflect on their responsibilities and development and improve their wellbeing.


PSHE is no longer a statutory part of the National Curriculum, although all schools should make provision for it. Schools are free to include other subjects or topics of their choice in planning and designing their own programme of PSHE education. This is where The Feel Good Factor can help.
