Relationships and health education
From September 2020, it is a statutory requirement that all primary schools in England and Wales teach Relationships and Health Education as a fundamental part of the curriculum.
The requirements of the new Relationships and Health Education curriculum will be taught mainly through PSHCE and science. Parents will not be able to withdraw their child from any aspect of Relationships Education or Health Education. However, parents will be able to withdraw their child (following discussion with the school) from any additional aspects of Sex Education which are not part of the science curriculum.
Before finalising our RHE policy, we would like to gather the views of children, parents, staff and governors.
Please read through the following documents and make comments on them using this link before Friday 11th September 2020.
We will be using Coram Education's SCARF resources and curriculum to teach RHE. The curriculum overview is below:
