Relationships: how to develop and maintain a variety of healthy relationships, within a range of social/cultural contexts; how to recognise and manage emotions within a range of relationships; how to recognise risky or negative relationships including all forms of bullying and abuse; how to respond to risky or negative relationships and ask for help and how to respect equality and diversity in relationships.
Core theme 3.
