Relationships Sex Education Survey May 2021
(Apologies for any problems encountered when completing the parental survey the link should now work fully).
The modern world for all young people looks very different from the way it did 20 years ago when the current curriculum was last updated.
From September 2020 all secondary schools are required to teach Relationships and Sex Education (RSE). This will build on the Relationships Health Education taught at primary school which will focus particularly on friendships, family relationships, and relationships with other children and with adults. During secondary school, this curriculum will aim to give young people the information they need to help them to develop healthy, nurturing relationships of all kinds. At the appropriate time, the focus will incorporate intimate relationships and sex to equip young people with the knowledge they need to make safe, informed and healthy choices as they progress into adulthood.
There is further information available here:
Our school will have the flexibility to deliver the set content in a way that is age and development appropriate. The guidance from the DfE recommends that schools work with parents on the design and delivery of RSE Topics, recognising that parents are the primary educators of their children, particularly where relationships and sex are concerned. Relationships and Sex Education is best delivered with cooperation and support from parents. Schools are required to consult with parents on any changes to their Relationships and Sex Education policy and gather support for the new curriculum by providing opportunity for parents to feedback.
