Examples

The learning is supported through external agencies:-

The Loudmouth Company put on a performance and follow up workshops each year for all key stages pupils covering aspects of sex and relationship education differentiated to fit he pupils’ ages and abilities.

The sexual health service has delivered sessions on ‘sex and relationship education’ to classes, at no cost, starting initially with classes in KS5. These sessions will follow a 12 week programme and it is hoped that we can continue with these sessions in the future.

Trips to ‘Safe Side’ have taken place in previous years. This gives pupils a valuable insight into safety issues delivered by the Fire Service.
