Relationships and Sex Education

In school we aim to help children to learn to respect themselves and others and move safely from childhood, through adolescence, into adulthood. As part of this work, we deliver an ongoing programme of Relationships and Sex Education (RSE). We believe that by working in partnerships with parents we can encourage children and young people to make healthy choices as they grow and change.

RSE has an important part to play in learning about emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up.  It enables young people to develop the essential life skills for building and maintaining positive, enjoyable, respectful and non-exploitative relationships. It also supports learning about identity and the importance of staying safe, both physically and emotionally, including on and off line.  

Our programme of learning begins as soon as children arrive in school and continues until the end of secondary school. There is more information on our programme inside the leaflets at the bottom of the page..

We also have a curriculum map showing what children learn at each stage of their primary education and how this links to the wider curriculum for Personal, Social, Health and Economic education.
