Most schools that I've been in use the Collins "Your Life" series, but they are very text heavy. There are some useful bits of information, but they aren't wonderful for using for each and every lesson. Have you tried contacting different educational publishers and asking if you can have samples of their PSHE textbooks?? Have a look a few different ones and see if there is one that suits your students. Or even have different sets depending on the ability/needs of different classes? Textbooks are best used sparingly. Does your department include many non-specialists who are not very confident with the subject matter? There are a lot of resources on the TES site, and websites which can be used for research/ educational games. Specify which sites they go on- the BBC, Channel 4 and NHS websites are good. Your LA should also have someone who can suggest resources. http://www.channel4learning.com/sites/lifestuff/content/up_close/up_close.html http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/teachers/barefacts/ Good luck.
