Relationships and Sex Education Consultation
In June 2019, the Department for Education released guidance to primary schools regarding the statutory teaching of Relationships and Sex Education (RSE). It is expected that all schools deliver an age-appropriate RSE curriculum. Due to the COVID 19 Pandemic, the Department of Education has stated that:
"The new curriculum will be compulsory from September 2020. Schools should start teaching from that date if they meet the statutory requirements. If they are not ready, or are unable to meet the requirements, they should begin teaching by at least the start of the summer term 2021."
The school previously used "Spring Fever" and "All About Me" to deliver this aspect of the curriculum. However, the school has reviewed it's provision and would like to consult with you all regarding the proposed changes, in line with your rights as parents and carers. Your views are important to us.
Normally, we would invite parents and carers into school to discuss the consultation face-to-face. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are prevented from doing this. Therefore, the school has produced a consultation presentation, policy and accompanying resources (uploaded to this page). Please carefully read the materials below and respond to the consultation via the survey link in the presentation.
The school is aware that there will be differences of opinion, but will take your views into account when the policy and curriculum plan is finalised. Please respond to the materials via this form, which will be open until the end of this half term (Thursday 1st April 2021).
We will share this with you early in the Summer Term 2021.
