Home-School Partnership Policies

The Department for Education has made changes to relationships and sex education following nationwide consultation which came into effect from September 2020 and all schools are required to comply with the updated requirements. The statutory guidance can be found at:

The guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, wellbeing, safeguarding and healthy relationships.

Learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up will give children and young people the information, skills and positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and help them take responsibility for their own well-being.

Consequently, we have reviewed our RSE policy and curriculum and, in doing so, have made some small changes that ensure we conform to the new requirements. Our updated RSE curriculum uses a scheme of work designed by Ten:Ten – a Christian organisation that helps communities grow in faith, love, understanding and compassion, always in consideration of a child’s:

•Age

•Physical and emotional maturity

•Special educational needs and disabilities

Parent and Carer views and feedback on our policy are always welcomed.
