Relationships and Sex Education is defined by the PSHE Association as ’learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up, relationships, sex, human sexuality and sexual health’. This content is delivered in an age appropriate way in our school with regard to the age and stage of pupils.
The aim of Relationships and Sex Education in our school is to equip children and young people with the information, skills and values they need to have safe, fulfilling and enjoyable relationships and take responsibility for their physical, sexual and emotional health and wellbeing.
We recognise the central importance of relationships in supporting children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing, academic achievement and future success. Our programme also aims to support pupils in their personal development with regard to attributes such as kindness, integrity, generosity and honesty. These approaches support our wider work of building resilience in our pupils.
