We appreciate that teaching about breast cancer may not be an easy task. That’s why we’ve created an online module that we hope will support you all the way. Packed with information, useful links, top tips and a reminder that you’re amazing and have totally got this!
Our school pack helps you to educate your students about breast cancer. In line with the RSE curriculum and a PSHE Association Quality Assured Resource, it’s the best way to get young people adopting healthy behaviours. What’s more important than that?
We want to make sure that all young people have the facts they need to feel confident in getting to know their bodies from a young age. That’s why we’ve created some super helpful posters which include all the information they need to be clued up on breast cancer.
Our materials pack is perfect for getting your young people clued up on checking. Each pack contains: Leaflets about CoppaFeel! and the importance of checking, checking cards for a handy reminder of signs, symptoms and our free text reminder service, and stickers and badges to help you start healthy checking conversations.
The #RETHINKCANCER Campaign was set up in 2013 after seeing the positive response to our breast awareness sessions in schools. It was born from the idea that all young people should have the right to be educated about all types of cancer in schools, not just breast cancer.
By contacting your local education authorities and asking what they do to ensure health education, including cancer, is on the curriculum, you helped the #RETHINKCANCER Campaign achieve its goal…
As of September 2020, health education is now compulsory in schools!
