What are Children Learning?

We passionately believe that giving children the skills and confidence to assess a situation and make their own decisions is vital to them keeping themselves safe as they get older, enabling them to be independent young people. We want all children in Banbury to have the confidence to say ‘no’ when they believe that it is the right thing to do and to know how and who to get help from if they need it.

The current local issues that our curriculum focusses on are Substance Misuse, Protective Behaviours and Positive Relationships. We understand that these topics will contain sensitive issues and information so please rest assured that each of the three areas have been written by teachers who have tailored the content to age-appropriate expectations. Each unit begins with lessons to help children shape their moral compass and understand and listen to their inner warning signs when faced with a tricky situation along with carefully selected content.

If you have any further questions about what is taught in the units, please contact your child’s school and they will be happy to talk you through the content and answer any questions. The following schools teach the SCIB curriculum.
