During the Year 8 Relationships and Sexual Education (RSE) day off timetable, the pupils looked at a short film called "The Trouble with Max", which explored themes linked to negative pressures and influences from family, friends, social media, and the wider media.
It showed how these influences can have a negative impact on our sense of self and the way we treat others. The sessions allowed pupils to reflect personally on the negative pressures and influences they are faced with and discussions were made on how to combat these lies with a deeper understanding of the truth about who they are.
Mr Khan, ACL of RE, PSHCE and RSE commented "The pupils were highly engaged and worked exceptionally well throughout the day. They were mature and respectful. The high-quality discussions and work pupils were produced was fantastic and the RE department was really impressed with how hard working the pupils have been in their RSE lessons."
