Next Wednesday (Wednesday 23 October) is our first SMVSC day of the year, where we collapse the timetable to cover our PSHE curriculum. Below is a brief outline of the topics that will be covered during the day by each year group. The theme for this day is relationships, which may include a range of concepts-e.g. relationships with others, with themselves, with animals and with society.
