During the Autumn term, each year group in school will be focusing on mental health and well-being and then moving on to drugs and alcohol in our PSHE lessons. We will also cover the topics of democracy, through our class council elections, rule of law, through writing class charters, target setting, World Mental Health day, Black History month, Anti-Bullying week, Remembrance day and firework safety!
