Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSHE)

Welcome to the Relationship, Sex and Health Education page (RSHE.)

From September 2020, the Government decided that all primary school age children will be taught Relationships and Health Education, although they have given schools some flexibility on when they fully implement the new curriculum until summer 2021 due to the disruptions caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. We will be teaching the new Curriculum from after Easter 2021.

We met to consult with parents to:

  • Inform parents and carers of the school’s legal obligations on Relationships and Sex Education (From Summer term 2021).
  • Highlight the changes to our RSHE policy.
  • Make you aware of your rights as a parent/carer.
  • How, what, why and when we intend to teach the children.

The idea of this consultation exercise was to give parents a chance to see how we have interpreted the statutory guidance, for parents to ask questions and for us to gain your feedback.  Our RSHE policy and will give you all the information you need about our approach to Relationships, Sex and Health Education at St Lawrence Primary.   

The other documents (links at the bottom of the page) are designed to give you further information and guidance about these changes from the DfE and Jigsaw.
