From September 2020 the Department for Education is making the Relationships Education and Health Education part of PSHE compulsory in all schools. Additionally, The Department of Education continues to recommend that all primary schools should have a sex education programme tailored to the age and maturity of the pupils.
What does the new guidance mean?
The new guidance focuses on mental health and wellbeing, physical health (including healthy lifestyles and first aid) and learning about safe, healthy relationships, including understanding consent and negotiating life online.
How will this be delivered?
Relationships Education in our school teaches the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships, with particular reference to friendships, family relationships and relationships with other peers, adults and online. This will sit alongside the essential understanding of how to be healthy, including recognising issues in themselves and others and how to seek support.
Sex Education at our school is tailored to the age and the physical and emotional maturity of the pupils. As a school we ensure that sex education should ensure that both boys and girls are prepared for the changes that adolescence brings and drawing on the knowledge of the human life cycle set out in the national curriculum for science – how a baby is conceived and born.
What if I have questions?
