Policy Documents and Further Information

Please familiarise yourself with the RSHE policy, Primary Schools Guide for Parents and read the ‘Top tips for talking to your child’, available above as PDF documents.

Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)

The vast majority of RSHE is compulsory. There is no right to withdraw from Relationships Education or Health Education.

Parents and carers are only able to request that their child is excused from Sex Education, taught outside of the national curriculum for science. If a parent wishes their child to be excused from some or all of the non-statutory Sex Education, they should discuss this with the Headteacher, making clear which aspects of the programme they do not wish their child to participate in. The Headteacher will outline to parents/carers the benefits of receiving this important education and any detrimental effects that withdrawal might have on the child. This could include any social and emotional effects of being excluded as well as the likelihood of the child hearing their peers’ version of what was said in the classes rather than what was directly said by the teacher (although detrimental effects may be mitigated if the parents/carers propose to deliver sex education to their child at home instead).

Once a decision has been made, parents/carers must inform the school in writing stating their reasons as to why they would like their child withdrawn. Once these discussions have taken place, except in exceptional circumstances, our school will respect a parent/carers’ request to have their child excused from non-statutory sex education. The school will document this process. 

Every year, we will invite KS2 parents to an RSE Workshop in Term 5 to inform parents of the content and right to withdraw before teaching commences in Term 6. Further information will be given closer to the time.
