Health and Sex Education

Self-care will be the general aim. At appropriate stages of school life, instructions and advice will be provided by members of staff or outside agencies on personal hygiene, diet, disability, sexual matters and dangers of abuse, child development and preparing for parenthood.

The Governing Body of Westcroft School has decided that sex education should form part of the school’s curriculum and will be undertaken as part of the Health Education Programme bearing in mind the cross curricular links necessitated by the requirements of the National Curriculum. Sex Education will be approached from a biological, ethical and moral viewpoint and a variety of teaching methods or organisation will be used. The expertise of outside agencies will also be sought.
