Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSHE)

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

You may know that from September 2020, the Government has 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 this new Curriculum from after Easter.

We will be holding a Zoom meeting with parents on Wednesday 31st March at 1pm 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 is to give you a chance to see how we have interpreted the statutory guidance, for you to ask questions and for us to gain your feedback.  Please take a look at our draft RSHE policy.  This 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.
