PSHE: Relationships, Abuse and Women's Safety
PHSE Co-Ordinator: Mr.T.Chappelle
King David High School is committed to teaching and promoting gender equality and women’s and girls’ safety, both within the school environment and in the wider world. We aim to achieve this through the Learning for Life programme, a whole school approach, and through our collaboration with Jewish Women’s Aid.
Learning for Life
The Learning for Life programme is taught to years 7-11 and covers all aspects of Relationship Sex Education (RSE), SMSC and Citizenship. Key aspects of these are equality and safe, healthy relationships. The full syllabus can be viewed here.
Whole School Approach
A Whole School Approach is a comprehensive way of creating an educational environment that enables and structures such support and works to promote equality and eliminate violence against women and girls. Vitally, a Whole School Approach ensures that positive activity in one area of work is not undermined elsewhere. For example, Learning for Life lessons teaching about respectful and equal relationships in the classroom will be meaningless if sexual harassment is ignored in the corridors outside. A Whole School Approach gives both young people and staff the skills to respond to, challenge and prevent violence against women and girls within their establishment and the local community.
Jewish Women’s Aid
We are proud to work in partnership with Jewish Women’s Aid, who deliver lessons to all pupils in Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 6th Form on healthy relationships, abuse and women’s safety.
