Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)
The children discuss a range of issues related to their health and wellbeing in PSHE and Science lessons, such as healthy eating, drug awareness, and personal safety and at a level relevant to their age. In Year 6 there is a specific drugs workshop delivered by ARCADE (Amethyst Resources Centre for Alcohol and Drugs Education), aimed at presenting children with positive choices for a healthy lifestyle.
Sex Education is taught progressively through the school, with more specific information being provided in Year 6. The emphasis for younger children is on a basic understanding of their body and the need to keep their bodies healthy and is taught in the context of building good, caring relationships with their peers. These themes are developed throughout the school, each year adding further knowledge and understanding. In Year 6, more detailed information about the human reproduction system and the responsibilities of relationships are taught and discussed.
