Relationships and Sex Education

Relationships and Sex Education plays a very important part in fulfilling the statutory duties all schools have to meet. RSE helps children understand the difference between safe and abusive relationships and equips them with the skills to get help if they need it. We have legal and moral duty to safeguard pupils and promote pupil well-being.  

Our PSHE page sets out how we teach our children about healthy relationships. 

See below for information on what we teach and when regarding sex education:
