Relationships and Sex Education Parent Consultation

Dear parents/carers,

In light of upcoming changes to requirements for relationships and sex education (RSE), we’ve been consulting with parents, pupils and staff on how we can make sure that our updated RSE curriculum meets the new requirements as well as the needs of our pupils.

We’ve worked hard to make sure that our new curriculum reflects:

  • Our pupils’ age and maturity levels, as well as their cultural and religious backgrounds
  • The values of our school community
  • Every pupil’s learning needs
  • What pupils need to know to be healthy and safe in school, in their personal relationships and in the wider world

We’ve now updated our RSE policy to include our proposed new curriculum. You’ll find a copy of our new draft policy on the website along with the objectives to be taught in each year group. There are also sample lessons and a quick-glance sheet of the key changes that have been made.

We’d like your feedback on the proposed curriculum, and the wider policy. You can do this by completing this survey: https://forms.gle/ZVig6ZeWznYaJr1i7 . Unless you wish to include your child’s or children’s names, the survey will be anonymous. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to give valuable feedback on the teaching of this subject. After the closing date, we will be aiming to provide a meeting based on the feedback to cover any content that you feel you need more information and guidance on.

The deadline for responding to the consultation is 30th April 2021.

We look forward to your thoughts and comments on these vital and inclusive changes.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Plowman
