Dear Parent/Carer

Introduction of Relationship and Sexual Health Workshops

Greenwood Academy in partnership with Castle Vale Community Regeneration Services (CVCRS) Health Team will be running targeted relationship and sexual health workshops for students in Year 9 commencing in September 2015.

The workshops are in addition to sex education aspects of the Science curriculum and will be delivered over a six week period as part of your child’s Information Advice and Guidance (IAG) curriculum.

Workshop content will be delivered by trained youth workers. The content of the workshops will take account of your child’s age, stage of development and will aim to develop your child’s understanding around:
  • Positive and healthy relationships 
  • How to access young people’s services
  • Peer Pressure
  • General sexual health advice 
  • Safe sex
In addition to the above the academy will also be running weekly lunch time drop in sessions where young people can access support, advice and guidance on relationships and sexual health. This will be hosted by our Health and Wellbeing Worker, Sean Jordan and colleagues from the CVCRS Health Team in the academies ‘Youth Zone’.

If you have any questions or would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact the academy on 0121 464 6101 and ask for Mr Cheese our IAG co-ordinator or Sean Jordan.

Yours sincerely

Harry French
Principal
