Relationships, Sex and Health Education
As a part of your child’s educational experience at Fleecefield Primary School, we aim to promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive taught programme of Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education that gives children and young people the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future
The Department for Education has announced changes to relationships and sex education following nationwide consultation. These changes came into effect from September 2020 and all schools are required to comply with the updated requirements. The statutory guidance can be found here.
Having reviewed our RHE/RHSE (Relationship Health Education/RSHE Relationship Health and Sex Education) curriculum and policy, we can be sure our RHE provision is appropriate for our pupils based on their:
Physical and emotional maturity
Religious and cultural backgrounds
Special educational needs and disabilities
As part of this process, the school consulted with parents, staff and governors that helped to inform our schools’ decisions on when and how certain content is covered.
This consultation enabled us to reach a general consensus and we made adjustments to our policy and curriculum based on this feedback.
The right to withdraw children from some lessons is explained in the policy which is linked below.
To help you understand the curriculum requirements, please look at the information below which provides more detail.
