Sexual Health and Relationships Education- SHRE

Following successful trials and extensive feedback from parents, East Dunbartonshire Council have developed a new approach to school based sexual health and relationships education.
This new approach is now being implemented from P1 – P7 within the science curriculum in our school. The hope is that all children will enjoy this new material and will begin to discuss age-appropriate issues at home.
