Priestley Primary School
Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)
As a part of your child’s educational experience at Priestley Primary School, we aim to promote personal well-being and development through a comprehensively taught programme of Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHEE) that gives children and young people the knowledge, under-standing, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future.
As you may already be aware, the Department for Education has announced changes to relationships and sex education following nationwide consultation. These changes will come into effect from September 2020 and all schools will be required to comply with the updated requirements. Due to COVID 19 schools have been able to delay this until the summer term 2021.
To help you understand the curriculum requirements, please click on the links below to access all the information, as well as a short survey we are asking you to complete. Your views are very important to us and we will respond to you on the outcome of this process later this term. Once we have considered all the feedback, the finalised Relationships and Sex Education Policy will be uploaded to the school’s website which will also set out the proposed curriculum.
