The curriculum will demonstrate appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding to fulfil the duties of the Relations Education (RE), Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education(HE) whereby schools must provide a balanced and broadly-based curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and prepares them for the opportunities and responsibilities and experiences for later life. This policy was produced in consultation with our staff, board of governors, pupils and parents. We will ensure the policy is effectively communicated to staff and parents, including through publishing the policy on our school website.
The information below complies with our statutory obligations to deliver PSHE and RSE under sections 34 & 35 of the Children and Social Work Act 2017. It also has due regard for the DfE’s (Department for Education) statutory Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education guidance and other relevant guidance.
We will review the policy on a regular basis (every 3 years) to ensure that it is in line with current Government guidance and legislation and to ensure that our RSE programme continues to meet the needs of our pupils.
This policy should be read in conjunction with the Computing, PE, Safeguarding and Child Protection and Science Policies and Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE) (2020).
