RESPECT covers areas such as keeping healthy, staying safe and managing money as well as focusing on specific areas such as Drugs Education and Sex and Relationships Education. Lessons develop skills such as co-operative working and speaking and listening. Students also learn about topics like how the country is governed at a local and national level, aspects of the law which relate to them and about the ways in which people can engage in democratic processes and take action to promote their views and help others. Lessons foster an understanding of the UK as a diverse society and the importance of mutual respect and tolerance. Students are actively encouraged to think of others and contribute to the wider community and whole school projects.
