Coram Life Education
Coram Life Education (CLE) is the UK's leading provider of high quality Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education and works to support 475,000 children nationally.
CLE educators deliver PSHE education sessions in 2,00 UK primary and secondary schools. As well as helping children make positive choices, teachers say that attending the sessions helps them feel more confident about delivering PSHE activities to children themselves. All our programmes are comprehensively aligned to the National Curriculum and new Ofsted requirements.
CLE has been helping children to make positive choices for more than 25 years. In April 2017, Coram was delighted to welcome Tomorrow's Achievers, a programme of workshops for gifted children that recognises the issues they face.

How CLE works
The positive impact of
their work within our school
is invaluable to staff and
pupils alike. - PSHE lead
West Midlands school
Specially trained CLE educators visit schools in a mobile classroom to help children keep themselves healthy and safe, central to PSHE education and children's Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development. CLE's mascot "Healthy Harold", the giraffe, helps deliver messages in a child friendly way.
Parents, carers and teachers
Because of the critical role parents, carers and teachers play in protecting children from risky situations, we also work with teachers, parents, carers and local communities, offering support and advice on subjects that can be difficult to address. Some of our resources include:
- SCARF: an innovative, interactive range of online resources designed to equip and support busy teachers in providing the best PSHE and Wellbeing education for their pupils.
- The Adoptables' Schools Toolkit: an educational resource for teachers aimed at showing pupils the realities of being adopted. It was developed with adopted young people and is available for teachers to use free of charge.
- bCyberwise: a set of online safety resources for eight to 11 year olds covering the National Curriculum Computing requirements relating to Internet safety, and promoting positive cyber citizenship.
- Time for change: a module on puberty delivered as a Relationships Education programme in partnership with Ecclesiastical Insurance.
- Captain Coram: this module explores the story of Thomas Coram and links with curriculum subjects History, Art and English.
