Relationships & Sex Education

In September 2020, the National Curriculum expectations changed for all schools for the teaching of Relationships Education (for all primary pupils), and Relationships and Sex Education (for all secondary pupils), that also includes Health Education for all ages. In teaching RSE, we are required by our funding agreements to have regard to guidance issued by the secretary of state as outlined in section 403 of the Education Act 1996. 

There is a special emphasis on health education and the mental health and well-being of young people, and our priority  is to make sure that all students are healthy, happy and safe. 

Any parent may at any time, exercise their statutory right to withdraw their child under the Education Act 1993, from all or part of the Sex and Relationships Education programme but not from the teaching of the biological aspects of human growth and reproduction that form part of National Curriculum Science. Any parent wishing to withdraw their child should contact the Headteacher.
