RELATIONSHIPS Education, SEX EDUCATION AND HEALTH EDUCATION
From Trinity Term 2021 (deferred from September 2020 due to Covid-19), all primary schools are required by the government to teach Relationships and Health Education.
Relationships Education is designed to help children to have positive and safe relationships with family, friends and online.
Health Education will help children to make good decisions about their health and wellbeing and enable them to know how to seek support if any health issues arise for themselves or others.
If you would like more information about statutory Relationships and Health Education, please read the government guide: Understanding Relationships and Health Education in your child’s primary school: a guide for parents.
At KST Primaries, we have been delivering Relationships and Health Education within our Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) curriculum for many years. We have reviewed our PSHE curriculum to make sure that our lessons meet the requirements that the government has set out for the content of Relationships and Health Education 2019.
We have also updated our Relationships and Sex Education policy to reflect the new statutory status for Relationships Education, and we are inviting parents to consider this policy before it is finalised.
