Welcome to our Relationships Education Curriculum 
To embrace the challenges of creating a happy and successful adult life, pupils need knowledge that will enable them to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships. 

Pupils can also put this knowledge into practice as they develop the capacity to make sound decisions when facing risks, challenges and complex contexts. These subjects can support young people to develop resilience, to know how and when to ask for help, and to know where to access support.

We recognish that high quality, evidence-based and age-appropriate teaching of these subjects can help prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. They can also enable us to promote the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils, at school and in society.

Currently, Raltaionships Education is taught in specific year groups as part of our PSHE programme. 

The new Relationships Curriculum became mandatory from September 2020. To prepare for this, we held staff training and parent sessions from the beginning of January 2020. This enabled us to seek views and use these views to build a curriculum which was clear and progressive. 

Our RSE policy can be found in the 'Key Policies' section of the school website.
