Information for Teachers
Teenage Health Freak
www.teenagehealthfreak.org is a website for 10-16 years olds. It is based on the best-selling ‘Teenage Health Freak’ series published by Oxford University Press. The website contains a huge amount of information about health, relationships, illnesses, and other matters relating to young people’s lives such as bullying, stress, abuse etc. It also includes a virtual doctor’s surgery and the diary of a boy called Pete Payne.
The information on this site fits in with key stages 3 and 4 of the PHSE National curriculum, and has been developed by doctors experienced in adolescent health – a GP, Dr Ann McPherson and a paediatrician, Dr Aidan Macfarlane.
We know how busy teachers are, so to give you some idea of how to use this site in PHSE teaching we have had a lesson plan on ‘Sex and Relationships’ developed by an experienced PHSE teacher.
