The intent of our Relationships and Sex Education is to help and support young people through their physical, emotional and moral development.
RSE is embedded and delivered through our PSHE curriculum which is based on the PSHE association programme of study as well as being promoted through a range of curriculum areas and other school life experiences. We aim to help young people learn to respect themselves and others; and move with confidence from childhood, through adolescence into adulthood.
Our curriculum aims to provide the basis for an ongoing programme of RSE that promotes children to:
- Develop positive values and a moral framework that will guide pupils’ decisions, judgements and behaviour as they move into adolescence and adulthood
- Understand the consequences of their actions and behave responsibly within all relationships
- Have the confidence and self-esteem to value themselves and others and to have respect for individual conscience and the skills to judge what kind of relationships they want
- Communicate effectively
- Avoid being exploited or exploiting others
- Avoid being pressurised into behaviours or situations they do not feel comfortable with
- Understand the processes of puberty, conception and birth
- Show respect for their own bodies and other people’s
- Recognise their emotions and express them effectively and appropriately
- Understand the importance of family life for all and, in particular in the development of a child,
- Recognise and respect that different people make different decisions about the relationships they choose to enter into.
