Welbeing & relationships

The wellbeing of children and young people is enhanced and their learning outcomes optimised when they feel connected to others and experience safe and trusting relationships. Students who feel connected, safe and secure are more likely to be active participants in their learning and to achieve better physical, emotional, social and educational outcomes.

General Description
Wellbeing and Relationships aims to support students to develop their own personal wellbeing and their relationships with others. The subject is a combination of Relationships and Sexual Health Education, Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum and other mental health and wellbeing frameworks.

Relationships and Sexual Health Education

The program aims to improve the sexual health, safety and wellbeing of young South Australians by supporting schools to develop a whole school approach to relationships and sexual health education and to have a positive impact on issues such as teenage pregnancy, STIs, homophobic harassment & sexual coercion/assault.

The comprehensive curriculum covers topics such as puberty; sexuality; diversity; relationship; sexual activity & consent; gender, power & stereotypes; media and use of latest technology; safer sex, contraception & sexually transmitted infections; communication & decision making; places to go for help and support.

Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum (KS:CPC)

The Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum (KS:CPC) is a respectful relationships and child safety curriculum that teaches all children and young people they have the right to be safe and they can help themselves to be safe by talking to people they trust.

The KS:CPC teaches children and young people to recognise abuse, tell a trusted adult, understand what is appropriate and inappropriate touching and ways of keeping themselves safe.
The Department for Education has a legal responsibility to protect children and young people from abuse in its own settings and in the wider community.

All children and young people have a right to:
• be treated with respect and to be protected from harm
• feel and be safe in their interactions with adults and other children and young people
• understand as early as possible, what is meant by ‘feeling and being safe’
• the support of school based counsellors or designated staff in their education or care environment whose role includes being an advocate for their safety and wellbeing (Child Protection in Schools, Early Childhood Education and Care Services Policy, 2015, p4).
