Relationships & Health Education
Mrs Rogerson is the lead for PSHE which includes Relationships & Sex Education.
Please visit the PSHE subject page - within the Curriculum pages - for more information.
Schools in England are required by law to provide relationships education in primary schools.
In our school, we are proposing to include the wider aspects of sex education (at a level appropriate to pupils' age and stage of development) as recommended by the DfE, PSHE Association and approved by our governing body (allowing parents the right to withdraw).
We believe that relationships education is important for our pupils and our school as it helps children and young people to be safe, healthy and happy as they grow up and in their future lives.

Statutory guidance for schools to deliver RSE came into effect in September 2020.
What are your rights?
• Parents will not be able to withdraw their children from any aspect of Relationships Education or Health Education (which includes learning about the changing adolescent body and puberty) which are part of the statutory curriculum.
• Parents will be able to withdraw their children from any aspects of Sex Education other than those which are part of the science curriculum. (Note that sex education will not be statutory in primary schools, however the new statutory guidance makes clear that schools should still provide a programme of age-appropriate sex education)
All of the materials used by the class teacher including teacher plans, presentations and children’s worksheets, are now available for you to access on the school website. Please note that as the content of these sessions is part of the statutory curriculum, you will not be able to withdraw your child from these sessions.
