Secondary age pupils

Look at the statements on the happy/not happy document (available to download below). These are all experiences that some pupils may have experienced of by the age of 16 and may be points of discussion raised by them in RSHE lessons, particularly by secondary age pupils.

Look at the statements and consider the following:

• Which of these you would be happy or not happy to consider when having discussions with secondary pupils?

• Which of these would you feel are appropriate to discuss at whole class/group level, which at individual level and which should not be discussed?

• Look at the statements that you feel should not be discussed at any level, what if a pupil raised this as a question or discussion point? What would your response be? How will you ensure that pupils do not go and find ‘inappropriate sources of information’ to find their own answers?

What actions will you take to ensure that you are confident in managing these secondary focused difficult questions?
