This term we will spend some time in school further developing our Relationships and Sex education provision, to enable our students to more fully understand the challenges that they face growing up in today’s society.

Assemblies next week will focus on sexual harassment, with a particular focus on online abuse. Following the assembly, students will be given an opportunity (via Google Classroom) to complete a questionnaire which will give us an insight into the experiences of teenagers in our school. This is an optional survey, but I am keen that we receive as many completed versions as possible, to further inform our curriculum, teaching and supervision arrangements. 

In addition to the work we are doing in school, I encourage you to explore this topic with your child. This link to the Children’s Commissioner website provides helpful information that could form the basis of your discussions.
