New guidance from DfE on Relationships & Sex Education

From September 2021, all primary schools in England have had to teach Relationships Education.

The focus in primary school should be on teaching the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships, with particular reference to friendships, family relationships, and relationships with other children and with adults.

We are reviewing our relationships and sex education (RSE) curriculum and policy, so we can be sure our RSE provision is appropriate for our pupils based on their:

  • Age
  • Physical and emotional maturity
  • Religious and cultural backgrounds
  • Special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND)

We need your feedback to help us do this.

The information on this page sets out to:

  • Explain our requirements for RSE
  • Explain how we currently teach RSE, and get your views on how well this curriculum works
  • Get your views on what you think our RSE curriculum should cover
  • Explain how we’ll develop our updated curriculum

Once you have reviewed the documentation, please complete our online survey HERE
