Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSE)
Following the consultation in March last year, please find below the materials we use in school teach your children about relationships, sex and health.
Over the years, we have accumulated a wide variety of resources which help us to delivery this very sensitive topic in a child-friendly way. We use the BBC Operation Ouch videos to help explain the more 'sensitive' bits.
Up to Year 5, the majority of the material focuses on ensuring that we educate the children as to relationships, families and correct naming of body-parts. In Y5 and 6, this extends to teaching about sex and more complex biological information.
As the 'S' in 'RSHE' is not statutory, you have the right to ask us to remove your child from these parts of the lesson. With respect, I would urge you not to do this, as it is important that these aspects are covered, and to do so in the same room, at the same time as their peers, adds an element of comfort (together with a large dose of giggling). It also means that after the lesson, you child is part of the inevitable conversations that will take place.
The material for The Y5 and 6 sessions can be found in the Y6 section below.
