National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms

PSHE curriculum in England to include gambling components (DfE, PHSEA)

Updates

November 2020

From September 2020, all schools in England are required to deliver the PSHE curriculum. The PSHE Association have worked with GambleAware to develop a comprehensive set of curriculum support materials for teachers to help deliver the gambling harm elements now included in that curriculum. In this year’s young people's gambling report, nearly a quarter (24%) of 11-16 yos said that a teacher had spoken to them about potential problems that gambling can lead to - we expect to see that increase year on year.
