We are officially launching our the consultation of the RSE The Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education.
I will share this through parent pay letter next week.
Please read the Policy and ask any questions through parent pay.
One that has already been asked is around the Sex Education part:
The DfE Guidance 2019 (p.23) recommends that all primary schools ‘have a sex education programme tailored to the age and the physical and emotional maturity of the pupils.
However, ‘Sex Education is not compulsory in primary schools’. (p. 23)
Schools are to determine the content of sex education at primary school. Sex education ‘should ensure that both boys and girls are prepared for the changes that adolescence brings and – drawing on knowledge of the human life cycle set out in the national curriculum for science – how a baby is conceived and born’.
At Donnington Wood CofE Junior School, we believe children should understand the facts about human reproduction before they leave primary school. We define Sex Education as understanding human reproduction and we intend to teach this as part of our PSHE curriculum.
