Community engagement

Community engagement

Professionals with particular areas of expertise can enrich a programme of SRE that is planned and managed by a teacher.

Members of the community who are trained and supported to work with children and young people can share and reflect on their knowledge, real-life experience and the beliefs and culture of the communities in which they live.

Classroom input by staff from local health services can help build the confidence and knowledge of children and young people to use local services if and when they need to.
