Health and Relationships

"Asking for help isn't giving up," said the horse. "It's refusing to give up."

(The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse - Charlie Mackesy)

The world that our children and young people face today is constantly changing, and the way in which they build relationships, interact with their peers and manage their own mental and physical wellbeing has changed significantly. Along with all the positives of modern technology and new media come great risks, as children and young people are exposed to information, content and people that could and do cause harm. For many young people today, there is little distinction between their online and offline lives. 

At Milborne Port, we believe that our Health and Relationships curriculum should give our pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible citizens inside and outside of school. We believe that children should develop sustainable relationships with others and also understand how their bodies change over time, as this will prepare them for later life.

We use the SCARF program set up by the Coram Life Education to offer discrete lessons, which cover the DFE Relationships and Health Education requirements. We want our learners to engage actively in our lessons being stimulated by effective questioning about topics that affect them and the world that they will be living in once their education has ended. Discussions in our sessions are integral as they explore scenarios in a range of different contexts and build upon their existing knowledge to respond appropriately in a given situation.
