Relationship and sex education (RSE)
As a part of your child’s educational experience at Holy Trinity CE School, we aim to promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive taught programme of Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education that gives children and young people the knowledge, under-standing, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future. Our PSHE Curriculum can be found on our website Curriculum including PSHE.
The Department for Education has made changes to relationships and sex education following nationwide consultation which will come into effect from the Summer Term 2021 and all schools are required to comply with the updated requirements. The statutory guidance can be found at:
The guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, wellbeing, safeguarding and healthy relationships.
Learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up will give children and young people the information, skills and positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and help them take responsibility for their own well-being.
We are reviewing our RSE curriculum and policy so we can be sure our RSE provision is appropriate for our pupils based on their:
Physical and emotional maturity
Religious and cultural backgrounds
Special educational needs and disabilities
We have been on specific training run by the London Diocesan for Schools (LDBS) and are planning to deliver the curriculum they recommend .
