Healthy Relationships

Healthy relationships are an important part of a child’s physical and mental wellbeing. They can make a child feel supported and secure, whilst unhealthy relationships can have a lasting negative impact.

Learning to navigate relationships and deal with conflict in a positive, constructive way is a key life skill and schools play a vital role in developing this.

Living Well Schools brings together resources to help with lesson planning, key local services for universal RSE provision, alongside targeted and specialist support dependant on your school’s needs.

Spotlight Programs

RSE Health Education Programme

In March 2021, we announced our partnership with HALE and JAMES to provide a new and updated formula for Bradford schools to deliver their Relationships, Sex and Health Education. As a part of this programme, the partner organisations have employed a qualified teacher and specialist youth workers to deliver the programme to Bradford Secondary schools, in line with DFE guidelines. We can tailor our programme to the needs of the schools and their students. The programme includes sessions on identity and values, boundaries, gender and sexuality, consent and peer pressure, teenage relationship abuse, sexual health and contraception and pornography.

Trusted Relationships (1:1 and group work)

The main aim of both the 1:1 work and the group work is to deliver preventative work to both schools and communities. Training has taken place with teachers, parents and support staff.
