Ensuring that pupils develop the knowledge and skills needed to stay safe is a fundamental part of the curriculum and is addressed in the following ways:
Relationships & Sex Education:
Our tiered-RSE offer, including the bespoke ‘Ripples’ RSE curriculum, ensures that pupils learn how to build and maintain positive, healthy, relationships in a meaningful context. There is a detailed summary of the full aims of RSE on the school website within the school’s ‘RSE Procedure’.
We work extensively with Speech and Language therapy colleagues to develop pupils’ communication to ensure that our pupils use communication systems that are well-matched to their profile of need and give them the best possible opportunity to engage meaningfully with the world around them. As well as this we work closely with businesses in the Surbiton and Tolworth area to promote our pupils’ talents, working to reinforce learning and to positively address some of the misconceptions that may prevent young people with disabilities from fully accessing their local community. Full details of how we promote the voice of our pupils can be found on the school website.
