    Ways in which parents can help:

    1. Learning from real-life experiences is central to personal and social development. PSE sessions help learners to access balanced factual information from a range of sources, and enable them to become more aware of alternative viewpoints. PSE provides excellent opportunities for learners to discuss local and global contemporary issues.
    2. Assist pupils with their revision for tests and exams.
    3. Don’t reinforce any prejudices they may have about religion and encourage open minds.
