Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)
One of the key events in the school calendar that was postponed due to school closure was the initial information evening on Relationships and Sex Education. I know that many of you were keen to attend and quite rightly regard this as an important aspect of your child’s education. As a school we really want to work with you in preparation for the delivery of this mandatory curriculum.
We have now made a video of what would have been shared on that evening which can be found via this link. Please feel free to watch at your own convenience.
There are two really important links in the video, which detail exactly what secondary schools are expected to teach to your child. These are important, detailed documents which give a clear outline of what secondary schools will teach to their pupils. They can be found here:
Relationships, Health and Sex Education: Government guidance – pages 27-29 are particularly useful to see the content pupils should learn.
Guide for Parents – a quick simple guide with key information
We would like to work with a small group of parents to help us make decisions on when and how we teach sex education to the pupils. If you would like to put yourself forward to form part of our parent working group, then please complete the form in the link below:
Once the working party has consulted and there are agreed plans and a curriculum in place, this will be shared with you. You will then be given the opportunity to submit your views on the planned curriculum.
Thank you for your engagement with this matter, and we look forward to continuing to work with you.
Mr C. Carter
