We are a Healthy School.



The Welsh Network of Healthy Schools Scheme describes a health promoting school as one which 'actively promotes, protects and embeds the physical, mental and social health and well being of its community through positive action'.

In Blaenymaes Primary School we are a Rights Respecting School which places the United Nations Convention on the Rights of The Child at the heart of all we do. When you visit us you will see the Rights Respecting articles all around you. When you scroll through our Twitter page @BYM_Primary you will see that the learning experiences for the pupils have wellbeing, rights, and healthy aspects running through them.


We are proud to have achieved a National Quality Award for Healthy Schools, our Silver Eco Flag and Gold Rights Respecting Award. 


Below you will see some links useful to supporting our Healthy Schools ethos. 


Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE)

RSE is a mandatory requirement in the Curriculum for Wales for all learners from age 3 to 16. This means that all learners must receive this education. 

RSE is a positive and protective part of the Curriculum for Wales . It plays a central role in supporting learners to enjoy fulfilling, healthy and safe relationships throughout their lives.

Please see the videos below to find out more information about RSE in school. 

What is Relationships and Sexuality Education?

Relationships and sexuality education (RSE) is an innovative part of the new Curriculum For Wales. All learning provided under RSE will be appropriate to the age and developmental stage of the learner.

RSE - What will primary children be taught?

The aim of RSE is to gradually build learners knowledge, skills and values as they develop emphasising the social and emotional aspects of relationships.

Education about relationships in early development should focus on the building of self-esteem by encouraging learners to value themselves; recognise and communicate their feelings and form friendships.

Please click link below to open our Cluster RSE leaflet with information for parents.

Our core RSE curriculum in Blaenymaes Primary uses the Swansea Bay RSE pack and the No Outsiders books.

In addition to this, pupils will be taught aspects of RSE though Empathy Lab books and Internet Safety lessons.
