Dear Parents/Carers

We are planning to deliver breast awareness sessions this month from the 12th June in your child’s PSHE lesson.

We will be using materials developed by CoppaFeel!, the UKs first breast cancer charity to solely create awareness amongst young people, with the aim of instilling the knowledge and tools they need to get to know their bodies. Although a serious matter, the message is delivered in a light-hearted way, empowering young people to kick start healthy habits for life. We hope to answer any questions the students might have on the day, but there may be some information or issues your child may wish to discuss further at home.

We are hoping to start an open and honest conversation around breast cancer, and hope this will continue outside the classroom. We are not experts on the subject nor do we expect you to be and therefore suggest having a look at the CoppaFeel! website - coppafeel.org - for further information that might be useful.

If your child has a close relative or friend that has gone through, or is going through, cancer, please do let us know so we can support them accordingly. If you have any concerns or questions around the session(s), please do let me know (Emily Lofthouse, Head of PSHE, email:  emlofthouse@liskeard.cornwall.sch.uk)

Kind regards

Emily Lofthouse
