RSE and Health Education Guidelines

Today’s children and young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world and living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. In this environment, children and young people need to know how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way.


NPS is a forward looking school which consequently never stands still. New resources, methods of teaching, learning opportunities, an ever increasing range of visits and activities are ways that NPS continues to provide the very best in primary education.
