Personal, Social and Health education is an important theme running through all areas of the curriculum, and while it is most likely to de discussed in lessons such as physical education or science, we aim to discuss issues relating to a healthy lifestyle with the children whenever appropriate. These sessions will also focus on emotional health and well-being.
Through our curricular themes the subjects of birth, growth and change are approached as they arise in science, humanities, health education and religious education. Teaching takes place in a proper context with due regard to the child's stage of development. We aim to present facts in an objective, balanced and sensitive manner.
Sex and Relationships
Parents will always be informed before children receive any formal sex education lessons (Year's 5 & 6) and will be given the opportunity to preview all materials used. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from any formal sex education lessons that take place.
