Sex and Relationships Education
The school provides a programme of Sex and Relationships Education that is taught within the PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education) scheme of work and has cross curricular links to science and RE.
SRE is lifelong learning and involves acquiring information, developing skills and forming positive beliefs, values and attitudes appropriate for children’s age and physical development. SRE has a key part to play in the personal, social, moral and spiritual development of young people. It begins informally in the home and it is our intention at KS1 and KS2 to build on this and not to undermine it. Young people’s entitlement to SRE is described fully in our SRE Policy which has been developed in consultation with parents. Parents have a right to withdraw their child from the PSHE elements of SRE, however the science objectives are statutory and therefore children can’t be withdrawn from those lessons.
