Health, Sex & Relationship Education

Our programme of health education is an integral part of our science and PHSE curriculum: 

In KS1 we help the children to find out about themselves, how they grow, move and use their senses. They learn about how to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle and to avoid harmful substances.

In KS2 we help the children to understand the functions of the major organs, together with the processes of breathing, circulation, growth and reproduction.
