As you may be aware, from September 2020, the Department for Education announced changes to Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE). This means, we have reviewed our RSHE curriculum and policy so we can be sure our provision meets the Government criteria and is appropriate for our children based on their: age; physical and emotional maturity; religious and cultural backgrounds; special educational needs and/or disabilities; and what pupils need to know to be healthy and safe in school, in their personal relationships and in the wider world.
The ‘sex education’ aspect is not statutory in primary school. The statutory requirements in primary school are that we teach the Health Education curriculum and Relationship Education curriculum.
The statutory guidance can be found at:
As a school we would very much welcome your support and comment and I am pleased to provide a Parent and Carer Consultation period.
In light of the current circumstances, it is not possible for us to have a further face to face information session. I am therefore placing the following documents, for you to explore, on the PSHE page on our school website: *link*
If you could look at the documents and power point and return any comments or questions via the Google Form link below, before 22nd October 2021.
The content is not unfamiliar to us and we have always operated within an ethos of tolerance and acceptance. We take any curriculum development very seriously and know that we must play our part in preparing our children for the wider world.
