Through the framework of themes (Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the wider world), issues such as family life, safety, exercise, substance use and misuse, food and nutrition, personal hygiene and environmental pollution are developed in a way suitable for the age and development of the child. This is outlined in a Personal Health and Awareness Policy, adopted by the Governing Body. If issues are raised by individual pupils, then these are dealt with sensitively and honesty by the staff concerned. The support of the school nurse and health support agency is enlisted wherever appropriate. The school incorporates elements of Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) education across all areas of the curriculum in order to develop children’s social skills and enable them to function as a ‘good citizen’ within society.
