Relationships and Sex Education
In 2020/21, we introduced a new scheme for teaching Relationships and Sex Education (RSE). As a primary academy we must provide relationships education to all pupils as per section 34 of the Children and Social work act 2017.
RSE is about the emotional, social and cultural development of pupils, and involves learning about relationships, sexual health, sexuality, healthy lifestyles, diversity and personal identity.
RSE involves a combination of sharing information, and exploring issues and values.
RSE is not about the promotion of sexual activity.
PSHE is about developing pupils’ Personal, Social, Health and Economic knowledge and understanding.
The programme will be delivered in all year groups with the exception of Foundation Stage. It will be delivered throughout the year. You can download an overview of the programme and our RSE policy using the links below.
