Health & Wellbeing and Relationships & Sex Education

Health and Wellbeing Curriculum Statement of Intent

At Boreham Primary School, it is our aim to ensure that all children lead happy and healthy lifestyles both physically and mentally. We believe that Health and Wellbeing in school has many benefits that prepare out children for living in our forever-changing world and it is important to us that all children leave Boreham Primary School with a good understanding of healthy lifestyles, relationships and living in the wider word. At Boreham Primary School, we are a friendship school; this means that all children are kind to each other regardless of gender, race, religion or disability. This is well supported by our school moto ‘Hurt body, hurt feelings, tell a grown up’.
