Relationships and Sex Education Consultation
As a part of your child’s educational experience at Oulton Primary 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, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future.
As you may already be aware, the Department for Education has announced changes to relationships and sex education following nationwide consultation. These changes came into effect from September 2020 and all schools will be required to comply with the updated requirements (deferred to Summer term 2021). The statutory guidance can be found at:
This means that we have been reviewing our RSE (Relationship and Sex Education) 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
As part of this process, the school is consulting with parents, staff and governors to help inform our schools’ decisions on when and how certain content is covered.
Please read the information provided below and complete the survey at the bottom of the page. So that we can respond to any specific questions and engage with you better, you must provide your name so that we can follow up with you if necessary. Your personal details will not be used for any other purpose and the results of the consultation will be anonymised.
The Consultation Questions are:
- Would you like support at home, on how to speak to your child about relationship and sex?
- Are there any changes or additions that you think should be made to the RSE Policy?
- Are there any changes or additions that you think should be made to the RSE Curriculum Outline?
- Thinking about relationships and sex education, what do you believe is the most important subject area that should be taught for different age groups/key stages and why?
- Thinking about relationships and sex education, is there an area that you think should not be taught for different age groups/key stages and why?
