Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)
There are two parts to RSE
The school was an early adopter of the Relationships and Health Education guidance and developed a policy in 2019 following consultation with parents and a working group of staff, governors and parents. The policy was initially separate from Sex Education so parents did not confuse the two things, but it has since been combined into one policy.
More recently in 2023, we have consulted again on moving some aspects of the Sex Education units to Year 4 to cover puberty and menstruation which are recommended to do before changes take place.
Below you can see the consultation feedback and our current policy for RSE alongside resources and suggested texts that we use.
Schools are expected to consult with parents and carers regarding the RSE Policy. Here you can see the outcome to two consultations in 2019 and 2023.
