Relationship and Sex Education (RSE)
In Term 6 we will be teaching Sex and Relationship Education across the school. Although the title of this unit of work includes the word ‘sex’, please be aware that all lessons taught a re carefully chosen to be age appropriate for each class. Most of the work will the children do across the school will focus on the relationship element of the unit. Relationship lessons will include learning about the different relationships they have with their friends, families and other people they know. We will discuss how to be caring, helpful and kind towards each other.
As in the past, we will provide details of what we are teaching before the lessons begin. You will also be invited to meetings to discuss these units and see some of the resources we will be using towards the end of term 5.
Our RSE Policy has been updated this year to reflect the 2017 policy statement issued by the government regarding SRE education and to support the work we are doing this year to promote inclusion and challenge homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.
