Our customers say it best...
We initially invested in the Chameleon PDE resource library to update the programme for our 6th form students. Our students responded well to the resources, finding lessons helpful and engaging. Teachers found the resources interesting, clear, and well-structured, which facilitated the planning and delivery of PSHE lessons. In a busy school with many responsibilities saving time is a major benefit of any resource, and Chameleon PDE does not disappoint. Therefore, after using the 6th library for a few months we made the decision to purchase a subscription for the rest of the school.
We have found that the flexible nature of Chameleon PDE lesson packs enable us to provide our students with an interesting and varied programme. Being able to mix and match activities and easily edit slides is a bonus and an unusual benefit of the resources. The one-to-one support offered by Chameleon PDE is second to none and their claim that a key aim is to build teacher confidence to effectively manage the health and wellbeing in their partner schools is something we have experienced.

Being supported by Chameleon PDE has helped us with many aspects of our PSHE programme. We have enhanced the plans we already had in place and refreshed and updated our student offer. The resources have been well received by students. They like the more varied tasks and more opportunity for discussion. The resources cover the statutory RSHE content well and students are pleased to get the RSE they need and deserve. The PowerPoint Slides are really clear and easy to follow with engaging visuals for staff and students.
The included 'How Are You?' pupil survey has been a key source of information to aid content planning and we have adjusted the curriculum plan to incorporate the topics students want more time on. This has also been great to see where students report topics that are covered well. Working with Chameleon PDE is great value for money. The resources, the CPD opportunities and the great support offered by the team is brilliant.

Richard and Angela at Chameleon PDE have been an amazing support to me as PSHE Lead and our school, nothing has been too much trouble! Our school is a small SEN school and I think the Chameleon resources are the best that I have used. They are broken down to shorter and longer activities which is perfect for our students. The PowerPoints are editable and easily adaptable for my SEN students. The safeguarding guidance added to the lesson plan is so important, we now have it up in our classrooms. The lesson plans are excellent, very clear and have so much information contained. I would recommend them to any school that is looking to ensure their curriculum meets the statutory guidance for RSE and Health and Wellbeing.

Our vision for PSHE at Garden International School is a bespoke, progressive package that runs through the school. Chameleon allows us to do this by providing a huge resource bank of clear, well-thought-out resources, planned by experts. The key features that led us to choose Chameleon were the student survey and the editability of the resources. The survey results have given us insights into our students' experiences that we have used to create a bespoke PSHE curriculum, responsive to their needs. The editability of resources means we can adapt lessons to fit the unique context of our school. We are delighted to be part of both the staff and student Advisory Groups and have already been impressed with the responsiveness we have received from Angela and Richard in adapting systems for international schools and considering resources specialised for international contexts.”

As I sit here planning KS5 PSHE lessons once again for the Spring Term, based solely on your Chameleon resources, I just had to take the time to say what a godsend your website and resources are. Without them, I wouldn't possibly have been able to carry out the role effectively, producing worthwhile weekly lessons for our Sixth-Form. The structure and content of the resources are just fantastic. They provide so much practical advice, incorporating realistic scenarios and always regular and worthwhile resources throughout.

I couldn’t believe just how much ground we managed to cover. I left with a clear plan of next steps and the reassurances I needed as a new PSHE Subject Lead to work through things successively. I was feeling overwhelmed, but having Chameleon PDE available to chat through my ideas gave me the clarity and confidence to know I was on the right track. I have been able to fully resource my programme from the Chameleon library, and using the data gathered from their 'How Are You?' pupil survey has allowed an extra element of tailoring the curriculum to pupil need. Inspectors noted a vast improvement in student personal development provision since our last inspection.
Ashley R, PSHE Lead, Ormiston Ilkeston Enterprise Academy, Derbyshire
It is so lovely to find PSHE resources that take the pressure out of planning, they are comprehensive and well resourced. They are also designed to provide more than enough material for a standard one-hour lesson meaning that you can edit and choose the activities most relevant to your cohort.
They are not afraid to tackle difficult topics such as suicide, I asked our trained school counsellor to check this particular lesson and she felt that the resources tackled the hard-hitting topic well and was appropriate and supportive of student mental health.
Lesley W, PSHE Lead, Wycombe High School for Girls
Since using Chameleon resources, planning and carrying out a successful PSHE curriculum has become enjoyable and fulfilling. The extra resources for guidance and staff education have been an invaluable source of support, helping us to gain a more thorough understanding of the needs of our students and staff body. The mental health and well-being of our students has been a priority to us. Using Chameleon resources has meant that students now feel open to discussion about more sensitive topics.
Emilia C, Mental Health Lead, Ark Acton Academy, London
Hi, I just wanted to give you some quick feedback on the Chameleon sixth form PSHE resources, which is essentially just to say that they're fantastic. I have put in a request in school for a few more ££ next year so we can think about the KS4 ones. I've taught PSHE for a long time and use resources from lots of different sources but yours are hands down the best I've seen, so thank you! We will be resubscribing!
