Physical, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is taught in all key stages to give your child the knowledge, understanding, social and practical skills to live a healthy and safe life as every child's wellbeing and personal development is of the utmost importance to us.
The government has introduced statutory changes in 2019 to ensure Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) along with Health Education is taught in the academic year 2020-2021. The guidance focuses on maintaining healthy relationships and keeping children safe as well as topics covering physical and mental health and safeguarding.
Schools are required to consult with parents and governors when developing and reviewing RSE policies which will inform the school's decisions on when and how certain content is covered.
We would like to invite parents to read our RSE Draft policy here and view the curriculum plans below:
We understand that engaging effectively with parents is key and are happy to address any questions and concerns parents may have regarding the school's approach towards RSE. Parents will have received a form to provide us with feedback. The form will be open until Thursday 1st April 2021. We look forward to hearing from you.
