Relationships & Sex Education (RSE)
The Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) curriculum is delivered during the second half of the summer term. The unit itself is called 'Changing Me' and forms the final part of the Jigsaw PSHE curriculum.
In every year group, the 'Changing Me' unit includes lessons to help children understand the changes growing and growing up brings. In younger year groups, this starts with learning about lifecycles and the correct terminology for body parts. These are important foundation steps for later learning around the changes puberty brings and (in some older year groups) how human reproduction happens. The lessons for Years 4, 5 and 6 look more fully at puberty and human reproduction and include single sex sessions where appropriate.
The attachments below provide more information for parents and are circulated every year in line with government requirements.
The government made Relationships Education and Health Education statutory for all primary schools from September 2020 and we value the opportunity to share the requirements with you, so you are clear about the curriculum we intend to teach the children and why we feel this is so important.
Parents with questions or concerns should contact the Headteacher.
