SEX AND RELATIONSHIPS EDUCATION
Sex and Relationships Education forms an integral part of the school's Health Education Programme which itself is based upon the programmes of study for Science at Key Stages 1 and 2. Much of the early work in this area is incidental and arises from animal and plant studies.
S.R.E. is taught as part of PSHE on a rolling programme of themes. It is introduced at the end of KS1 and further developed at the end of KS2. The KS1 programme focuses on birth, care and growth, including the care of babies and how we change as we grow up.
In KS2 the programme takes the subject further, looking at puberty and the physical and emotional changes that occur in teenage years.
Both programmes involve a mixture of videos, discussion and activities. Questions arising from the children will be answered in an age-appropriate manner, as determined by the teacher.
All parents and carers involved are invited to view any videos beforehand so that they can be in a position to support the work of the school and answer any questions their children may have.
Any parents or carers who do not wish their child to see a video should inform the Headteacher or Class Teacher at the appropriate time, so that their child may be withdrawn from the lesson.
