RSE Consultation

We have opened our consultation with parents on our Relationships and Sex Education Curriculum!

Parents have received communication form us regarding our consultation on our Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) Curriculum.

As you may be aware, the Department for Education has announced changes to relationships and sex education (RSE). These changes were due to come into effect from September 2020 but they were delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and closure of schools. However, in the summer term of 2021, we will be required to teach our RSE curriculum.

This means that we have now reviewed our RSE curriculum and policy so we can be sure our RSE provision is appropriate for our pupils based on their:
– Age
– Physical and emotional maturity
– Religious and cultural backgrounds
– Special educational needs and/or disabilities

However, we need parent feedback on this reviewed draft policy and curriculum to ensure we have the best curriculum offer to meet the needs of our children at Henry Chichele Primary School. We are particularly interested to hear views on when content is introduced to children. Guidance and research suggests that children should be taught about changes to their bodies before they experience them and we have used this guidance to structure our curriculum.

Here’s how you can help:
We are running a focus group discussion with a small group of parents on 20th April 2021 at 5pm. Due to social distancing, we will be running this group online using Microsoft Teams.
If you’d like to participate, please give your details in the survey that has been emailed to you via a link in the letter, ensuring you answer yes to question 1, before 1pm on Friday 16th April 2021.

The focus group meeting should take no more than 1 hour and will focus on the documentation shared with parents.

If you’re unable to participate in the focus group or view the survey but still wish to participate in the consultation, let us know and we’ll be in touch to discuss alternative arrangements.

Where can you find information in the meantime?
To help you understand the curriculum requirements we need to meet, please do take a look at the documentation below which details what all pupils are expected to know by the end of primary school.
