Healthy and Respectful Relationships

We understand that forming healthy, positive relationships helps children and young people feel safe and supported, but being in an unhealthy relationship can have a negative impact on our wellbeing and development.

Students in unhealthy relationships may feel anxious and nervous or not free to make their own decisions. They might have low self-esteem and depression, experience headaches or have other ongoing physical health symptoms.  Our staff understand the importance of healthy relationships and are vigilant in recognising when something is wrong in a young person’s relationship and take appropriate action to keep them safe.
