Although Relationships and Health Education is now compulsory in primary schools, some schools may also choose to teach some aspects of sex education following consultation with the wider school community, as recommended by the DfE. This is because sex education can help to promote safeguarding. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from sex education at primary level.
We are currently reviewing our RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) Policy and will be further consulting parents about this in the Spring term. The DfE have put together this helpful information guide for parents about the curriculum changes within PSHE and RSE this year. If you have any thoughts which you would like to share with the leadership team in the meantime, please do email these through via the school office.
