Relationships and Sex Education
The Department for Education has announced changes to relationships and sex education (RSE). These changes will come into effect from September 2020 and all schools will be required to comply with the updated requirements.
We have been reviewing our RSE curriculum and policy so we can be sure it is appropriate for our pupils based on:
• Our pupils’ age and maturity levels, as well as their cultural and religious backgrounds
• The values of our school community
• Every pupil’s learning needs
• What pupils need to know to be healthy and safe in school, in their personal relationships and in the wider world
As a school, we feel that we have an appropriate RSE policy in place which gives information outlining what will be taught to pupils within the RSE curriculum.
Our agreed policy, including information regarding the course content and a summary from the Department for Education of what all pupils are expected to know by the end of primary school, can be found here.
We hope that you will share our enthusiasm for the successful implementation of the new PSHE curriculum, which we feel will benefit all of our pupils.
We appreciate the feedback from parents who participated in our survey regarding the RSE curriculum. Thank you for your help! Our final policy has been uploaded if you follow the link above.
Should you wish to speak to a member of staff about anything to do with RSE then please do not hesitate to contact the school on 01530 832234.
