Chris Donovan Trust
AET is delighted to receive the Alcohol Awareness for Young People award (2018) from the Chris Donovan Trust.
The trust was set up by Vi and Ray Donovan who, in 2001, experienced the tragic loss of their son Chris through unprovoked violence. Using their own experience, they want to help educate people about the impact of crime on the victim, their family and wider society.
‘When we first heard of the Alcohol Education Trust, the first thing we did was to check them out and we were amazed by the alcohol educating work they are doing with young people in schools.
Mandatory health education in all schools by September 2020
We are pleased to learn that the government is committing to mandatory health education in all schools. This is excellent news and real progress in terms of PSHE becoming a statutory subject.
Under the proposals, all pupils will study compulsory health education as well as new reformed Relationships Education in primary school and Relationships and Sex Education in secondary school.
The guidance which was last updated in 2000, will become compulsory in all schools across the county from September 2020. Click here to read more on the Government commitment
