To embrace the challenges of creating a happy and successful adult life, our learners
need knowledge that will enable them to make informed decisions about their wellbeing,
health and relationships and to build their self-efficacy. Learners can also put this
knowledge into practice as they develop the capacity to make sound decisions when
facing risks, challenges and complex contexts. Everyone faces difficult situations in their
lives. These subjects can support young people to develop resilience, to know how and
when to ask for help, and to know where to access support.
High quality, evidence-based and age-appropriate teaching of Health & Relationships can
help prepare our learners for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
Our scheme of learning also allows us to promote the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and
physical development of learners, at school and in society.
