Coram Life Education

Coram Life Education (CLE) is the UK's leading  health, wellbeing and drug education programme in schools.

CLE is currently delivering in 20% of primary schools and reaching 840,000* children aged 3 to 16. By educating them about diet, exercise and how to manage risks as they grow up, we help them make healthier choices and take responsibility for their own lives

How CLE works

We make learning fun and memorable, capturing children's imaginations and curiosity through fun, age-specific activities.

Using stimulating and interactive techniques, such as puppetry and role play, we teach children about cause and effect in relation to issues they may face, including:

  • Healthy eating,
  • Drugs and alcohol,
  • Forming positive friendships,
  • Developing a sense of self-worth.

Specially trained educators deliver this programme to schools across the country in a fleet of mobile classrooms.

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.

This year, Coram Life Education users will be able to benefit from a unique set of online resources which will help to embed key principles and values of CLE into the school curriculum. ‘SCARF’ is an innovative, interactive range of resources designed to equip and support busy teachers in providing the best PSHE and Wellbeing education for their pupils.
