Many pupils are passionate about the welfare of animals though, if surveys are to be believed, many of them do not know how their bacon, eggs and milk are produced!
Food production is a growing topic of debate whether you are talking about the ethics of how we treat animals, how we produce healthy food and how we can feed a growing population.
Finding time to discuss topics such as animal welfare and sustainable food production is doubly valuable – it gives pupils an important understanding of a range of ethical and environmental factors and it encourages great debates!
To help you to engage your pupils in such discussions, we provide a free speaker service and a pack of resources including a film and discussion activities, which can be adapted for pupils of different ages, abilities and levels of confidence.
To enquire about a speaker or to order a free resource pack, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. It will be very helpful if you write “PSHE mailshot” in the subject title.
To view or download the resources directly, including films, please go to our PSHE/Citizenship webpage.

“Students were engaged throughout … Tutors reported a high level of interest and informed/considered discussion”
“Brilliant – outstrips any resource on any related topic I have ever seen”
“Even the least amenable groups were interested and involved – a tribute to the quality of the presentation”
