Sexuality Education - Year 9 and 10
Our year 9 and 10 classes are now approaching our teaching around this key area of learning. Below is an outline of the units of work at each year level. If you have any questions about the content covered please contact your child's Health and Physical Education teacher or Health Head of Department Sarah Eaton, firstname.lastname@example.org
In our Junior Health programmes we use the year 9 and 10 Family Planning Resources ‘Navigating the Journey’ to guide the planning of our units.
Year 9 - “Managing Me”
Students will identify changes that occur to them during puberty in relation to their Hauora/wellbeing. They will explore the effects this has on all aspects of their life and come to understand the similarities and differences between individuals at this time. The main focus will be to inform and support them to better understand how they can manage themselves during times of change.
Year 10 - “YOU-ality”
Students explore their understanding of sexuality with a strong emphasis on identity, values and beliefs. Students will have opportunities to develop their decision making, assertiveness skills and an understanding of the possible consequences in relation to making health-enhancing/non-health enhancing decisions around relationships and intimacy.
