RSHP Information for Parents

Please find the attached information sheet about Relationships, Sexual Health and Parenthood education programme primary six will be starting shortly.

We will start by looking at friendship to tie in with Anti-Bullying week. In this block of activities, children will explore friendship and will be encouraged to think about
what they would want from a friend and what kind of friend they can be. The children will explore the positive impact of friendship, as well as some of the challenges that come up in managing relationships. Children can worry about friendships, and there can be fall-outs and arguments between the children. We want to create a class where there is a positive atmosphere and where children get on. We want children to be able to manage the ups and downs of friendships. We will be helping children understand that they do not need to be best friends with everyone, but they can be friendly and kind. As many of the children will be online and may be interacting with people
online we will also look at why and how an online friendship may be different from a friend you know and meet at school or out playing. If you have any concerns about your child’s relationships and friendships, please do talk with us at school.
