Relationship and Sex Education
As a part of your child’s education at Betty Layward Primary School we promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive PSHE curriculum. From September 2021, it is a statutory requirement that all schools in England and Wales are teaching Relationship and Sex Education as a fundamental part of the curriculum. This subject area gives our pupils the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live safe, healthy, productive lives and meet their full potential.
The Department for Education has announced changes to Relationships and Sex Education (RSE), which is part of our programme of study. This guidance can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/relationships-education-relationships-and-sex-education-rse-and-health-education These changes will come into effect from September 2021 and all schools will be required to comply with the updated requirements. This means that we have reviewed our RSE curriculum and policy so we can be sure our provision is appropriate for our pupils based on their age, physical and emotional maturity, religious and cultural backgrounds, special educational needs and disabilities.
PSHE is taught throughout the school in every year group and is monitored and reviewed regularly by the staff and governing body. All teaching takes place in a safe learning environment and is underpinned by our school ethos and values. As a school community, we are committed to working in partnership with parents and if you would like to provide feedback or comments you can do so. If you would like to ask questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
As part of implementing the RSE curriculum, schools must consult with the children, parents, staff and governors to ensure there is a general consensus on our approaches to policy and the curriculum content.
