Relationships and Sex Education

The Department for Education has announced changes to Relationships and Sex education following nationwide consultation. These changes came into effect from September 2020 and all schools are required to comply with the updated requirements. The statutory guidance can be found at

The new guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, wellbeing, safeguarding and healthy relationships.

Learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up will give children and young people the information, skills and positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and help them take responsibility for their own well-being.  This will be incorporated into our curriculum under the theme of 'Growing and Changing' which all classes will follow from Easter onwards. 

Please see the policy and information below providing information on the content for each year group (which is in line with the statutory requirements of Relationships and Sex Education as well as Science).
