Last year we brought our Year 5 and 6 Growth and Development curriculum back into the classroom to be taught by the class teachers. It has been a fantastic success as it allows for organic conversations all year round.

Initiating conversations about respectful relationships with children is crucial for their emotional and social development.

By addressing topics like kindness, empathy, and communication, parents create a foundation for healthy interactions. These discussions promote awareness of boundaries, consent, and mutual understanding, fostering a safe environment where children can thrive.

Teaching respect from an early age equips kids with essential skills to navigate friendships and romantic relationships, building a future based on empathy and equality. Open dialogues about respect empower children to recognise and value their own feelings and those of others, cultivating a positive and harmonious approach to all relationships.

School TV has lots of information to help you with these conversations at home. Click here for more information.
