As part of our school’s Personal, Social and Health Education programme all children should receive lessons on relationships and sex.

The purpose of Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) is to provide knowledge and understanding of our relationships with others, understand how we grow and change as we get older and how to keep ourselves clean and healthy. From Y4 onwards, this will include how the human body changes during puberty and the processes of human reproduction, within the context of relationships based on love and respect.
We believe that if young people can start their transition into adulthood with good information and the confidence and knowledge to understand what is happening to them, they will grow into confident and healthy adults able to make positive choices. This can start with learning the basics about growing up and the sessions in school may reinforce what you are already doing at home.
Our RSE lessons aim to:
Our RSE programme includes age appropriate lessons which will be delivered by your child’s class teacher over the following couple of weeks. We believe that all teaching materials are appropriate to the age and emotional maturity of our classes.
You are welcome to contact us to discuss the programme or to view any of the teaching materials used.
Parents can withdraw their children from all or part of RSE that does not form part of the statutory National Curriculum at this stage.
