Body Confidence Campaign Toolkit for Schools

The Be Real Campaign’s mission is to change attitudes to body image and help all of us put health above appearance and be confident in our bodies.

We have produced a toolkit for schools because we know that in order to tackle body confidence later in life, it is essential that it begins from an early age. Secondary schools are a key setting for young people to discuss and challenge body confidence issues, with both teachers and students playing an important role in how this happens.

Our Somebody Like Me research, shows that body confidence has a direct impact on students’ academic performance and general wellbeing. Working with a team of experts and teachers, the Be Real Campaign created the Body Confidence Campaign Toolkit for Schools to help develop body confidence in all your students so they can thrive both in and out of the classroom.

“We have a responsibility for the physical, emotional and mental well-being of our students, and body confidence is definitely something that schools need to address.”
