Relationships & Sex Education


RSE stands for "relationships and sex education". The Relationships Education, RSE, and Health Education (England) Regulations 2019 have made Relationships Education compulsory in all primary schools. Sex education is not compulsory in primary schools.

All primary school children will be required to learn about relationships and health in particular: relationships and physical health and mental well-being.

Schools must create a curriculum that adheres to the statutory guidance. The curriculum must also be appropriate for children's ages and developmental stage and sensitive to the needs and religious backgrounds of the children in the school.

These changes were due to come in to effect from September 2020, but due to Covid-19 and school closures, the implementation was delayed until Summer 2021.How do we ensure all children can access RSE lessons?

Our RSE planning is designed to ensure that all children are able to access lessons and are enthusiastic learners. Differentiation within lessons is a vital component to ensure that a balance of support and challenge are achieved for all abilities. Differentiation is adjusted as expectations of individual pupils rise through progress. Effective quality first teaching is the key to enabling all children to participate and develop personally, socially and emotionally.
