As part of the statutory National Curriculum, aspects of relationship and sex education are taught to all pupils. This includes understanding growth, life cycles and reproduction for animals/mammals and naming of body parts. We believe that this biological approach needs to be balanced with an emphasis on relationships, feelings, and values. We are particularly concerned to ensure our children know how to keep themselves safe and healthy and develop confidence and self-esteem to ensure they are not vulnerable or exploited in any way.
As part of personal and social health education we are delivering the Shropshire Respect Yourself: Eat Better, Move More, Relationship and Sex Education programme.
