Our Implementation for Sex and Relationship Education as part of our PSHRE provision.

In May 2019 we have started to introduce the “No Outsiders” program as part of our SRE, PSHE and RE curriculum. This teaches children about the Equality Act and the different protected characteristics based on a range of non-fiction texts and classroom based activities including art and drama.

In 2021 we introduced a new scheme of work for PSHRE which will include our RSE called SCARF.

We also work with the NSPCC to talk to children about different kinds of abuse including sexual abuse and inappropriate touching.

We have been working with the Proud Trust as part of our Rainbow Flag Journey and will have specific lessons as well as a sprinkling throughout the curriculum to raise awareness and inclusivity of LGBT+.

All RSE is taught without bias and in line with legal responsibilities such as those contained within the Equality Act (2010).

Throughout PSHRE will will be teaching children about;

  • Families and those who care for them
  • Caring friendships
  • Respectful relationships
  • Online relationships
  • Being safe

We believe that sex education should allow children a safe space to ask the questions they may have without shame or judgement. Evidence states that a graduated age-appropriate spiral curriculum is the best way of preventing the topic of sex, reproduction and private body parts of becoming taboo and children from becoming embarrassed by the topic.

A sample of how RSE will be taught through PSHRE is below to give a flavour of how these lessons will progress through the school. All classes learn the terminology associated with our Rainbow Flag work.

  • A high degree of respect and empathy in lessons for themselves, each other and those in the wider community

  • They know how to stay safe and healthy

In 2021 we held a Parental Consultation about our RSE lessons and an online survey. 35 families responded. We had no responses saying that the parent disagreed or strongly disagreed with our delivery and content of RSE. We received many supportive comments in additional notes. Mrs Anstice has the survey results if anyone wishes to discuss in further detail.
