The ‘What is Cancer?’ lesson plans are designed to increase KS3 students' understanding of cancer, help them to identify the most common signs in teenagers and to feel more comfortable discussing the topic and seeking help while challenging some common misconceptions.
A well planned PSHE education curriculum provides the ideal context for this learning, as it develops an understanding of key concepts relating to healthy lifestyles and help-seeking.
