Personal and Social Education is an integral part of the school curriculum and embraces a variety of areas that encourage pupils to live healthy lifestyles, community awareness through citizenship and to foster positive behaviour patterns.
Welsh as a second language, is taught in focused lessons, 15 minute sessions per day and is used incidentally in all activities.
Sex Education is taught within the PSE and Science curriculum. Foundation Phase focuses on growing up, feelings. Key Stage 2 begins to look at body changes, emotions. Sex Education in Yr 6 generally includes outside providers. Parents are informed of the content of the Sex Education lessons through Yr 6 teachers running a parent information session and via letter.
Parents have the right to withdraw their child from attending Sex Education lessons. They must do so by notifying the Headteacher in writing.
