This is a quick courtesy email to let you know that as part of their Sex & Relationships Education, Year 8 are having lessons this week on Contraception. This includes teaching about safe and responsible condom use, which is vital in the context of teenage pregnancy statistics in the BoroughPDC translates as Personal Development Curriculum. Year 8 are ages 12-13 years. Text above is verbatim and complete, and dates from Tuesday of this week.
The PDC dept will, of course, make every effort to ensure that all condoms remain in the PDC classroom. However you will appreciate that it is impossible to be sure of this with classes of around 32 students. I am aware that a condom made it to the playground today (!!) and I wanted to take this opportunity to apologise if any find their way into your lessons.
If you see any students with condoms outside of their PDC lessons we would be grateful for your support by either dealing with them appropriately or referring them to the nearest PDC teacher!
