Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)

We aim to prepare children to grow up as responsible and well informed adults. Our programme of personal, social and health education (PSHE) includes sex and relationship education. We take much care to match the teaching to the age and maturity of pupils.

We teach older children about human reproduction during science lessons and about the emotional side of growing up through the PHSE curriculum. We invite parents to discuss these lessons and view any teaching plans or resources at the relevant points in the year. Although you have the right to withdraw your child from the sex education part of the curriculum, we ask you first to speak to the Headteacher about your intentions.

During the school year, we will talk to families about our RSE curriculum so families are clear about what we teach and when.
