Relationship and Sex Education

It is the policy of the school to teach relationship education.

In Year 5 science lessons, within the context of a topic on life cycles, statutory sex education is taught. The children are taught about life cycles of plants, insects and mammals and within that, human beings. The work is primarily designed to prepare the children for puberty and for the changes in their bodies that they will all experience as they grow up.

The work also looks at the development of the baby from conception to birth. Throughout this topic there is always an emphasis on the fostering of caring and loving relationships.

Each year we have a meeting for parents when you have the opportunity to look at the materials we use and ask any questions.
