As a maintained school we have an obligation to teach children about aspects of Relationships, Sex, Health Education (RSHE) and we feel it is important that we are clear about what that entails. The mention of the words, ‘Sex education’ can create unnecessary anxiety for parents and carers and we want to reassure you that the focus of much RSHE in the Primary Phase is broader than you might think. The curriculum covers issues such as:
In parts of the year we cover different aspects of the curriculum and to help you understand this more clearly I have provided below a concise overview by school, year group and topic. As far as possible we try to ensure the topics are woven naturally into other aspects of learning, including PSHE and science, and the PSHE themes of 'Relationships' and 'Changing me' are the school wide focus during the Summer term each year.
As a parent or carer you do have the right to request your child is removed from parts of the programme. If there is an aspect of the curriculum overview that you would like to know more about please feel free to contact the school to discuss this before making a decision to withdraw your child. It is important to clarify that withdrawal of your child can be considered only for content that is not part of the statutory Relationships, Health or Science curricula.
The documents below provide more specific detail of what is taught in each year group over the course of the year. Relationships Education appears throughout the programme but is a focus in PUZZLE Theme Five (Relationships)The few aspects of Sex Education that are delivered are typically included in the final part of the year PUZZLE Theme Six (Changing Me).
