DARE is a course developed in Nottinghamshire to help children years 5 and 6 (Age 9 – 11) acquire a wide array of personal and social skills, including:
- understanding the need to take personal responsibility for ourselves and others
- effective communication and listening
- coping by dealing with pressure and stressful situations
- decision making
- resistance skills
- the identification of risks and consequences, particularly in relation to substance abuse
Our children complete the DARE course as part of our PSHE curriculum.
