As part of our school’s Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) programme your child will receive Sex and Relationship Education lessons.
The purpose of Sex and Relationship Education (SRE) is to provide knowledge and understanding of how the human body changes during puberty and the processes of human reproduction, within the context of relationships based on love and respect. It should develop understanding and attitudes which will help pupils to form relationships in a responsible and healthy manner and to appreciate the value of stable family life, including the responsibilities of parenthood and marriage.
The key aims of SRE are to:
Provide accurate and relevant information about the physical and emotional changes that children and young people will experience through their formative years and into adulthood.
Establish an awareness of the importance of stable family life and relationships, including the responsibilities of parenthood and marriage.
Foster self-awareness and self-esteem.
Develop a sense of responsibility and respect for themselves and others.
Academic year 2021-2022
Please find below a Parents and Carers Guide that sets out the rationale behind teaching SRE as directed and guided by the DFE and The PSHE Association and the progression of objectives.
