Christopher Winter Project:The Christopher Winter Project is used annually with classes throughout the school as
part of the Personal, Social and Health Education programme recommended by the National Curriculum and the Local Authority. The project has been working successfully with schools since 1995. Such programmes are recommended by our local authority and many national organisations, such as the Association for Science Education. The Science National Curriculum in Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6) also now includes the statutory requirement to teach pupils to describe the changes as humans develop to old age. This may include the changes experienced during puberty. OFSTED also recommends that ‘schools have regard to the Department for Education guidance on teaching children about puberty before they experience the onset of physical changes’, which can happen as early as Year 5.
