Our school has a statutory duty to provide Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE), including issues relating to sexual health. SRE is a part of the programme for all students at Abbey College Cambridge. We take great pride in ensuring that the lessons are delivered in a moral and sensitive manner, taking into account the diverse cultures and range of religions at the college. Our Matron, and the Vice Principal Pastoral deliver these sessions with experienced specialist speakers.
The SRE programme teaches our students factual information about puberty and sexual health, in the context of inter-personal relationships. We aim to assist students to prepare for adult life by supporting them through their physical, emotional and moral development, and helping them to understand themselves, respect others and form and sustain healthy relationships.
