Welcome to Life Education East Midlands

We are Life Education East Midlands and we were formed on the 1st April 2022 following the amalgamation of Life Education Nottinghamshire and Life Education Northamptonshire.  From the 1st August 2022 Life Education East Midlands were delighted to be joined by Life Education Leicestershire.

We are a specialist charity provider of high quality health, well-being and drug prevention education working with primary schools across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Bedford, Central Bedfordshire, Milton Keynes, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Rutland. Our aim is to equip young people with the knowledge, skills and confidence to make choices that will help them to live healthier, happier lives.

We are a delivery partner of Coram life Education, the UK’s leading health and drug education organisation. Bringing health and well-being to life, our regularly updated programmes, keeping in line with demand and trends, have been created by child development experts to be stimuli-rich and interactive.  This is achieved through puppetry, role play, and film clips to capture children’s imaginations and develop critical thinking and risk management skills. Nottinghamshire also works alongside Nottingham City Council and Inspire Learning to deliver courses to parents and carers.

Our core programmes for children. (Download Programme Overview)
 Our highly trained educators provide children with stimulating and exciting sessions encouraging children to make healthy choices by:

  • educating them about the effects and risks associated with the use of all drugs, including alcohol and tobacco, and promoting the benefits of a balanced diet and exercise
  • using trained educational practitioners and proven methods of delivery
  • supporting other school work by integrating Coram Life Education resources within existing PSHE and Citizenship programmes
  • being evidence-based – taking account of ‘what works’ in education

The sessions link with the National Curriculum so that the work can be integrated and continued through a school’s PSHE programme of study.
