Relationship and Sex Education Policy
We help students to gain knowledge and understanding of how people grow and change as they mature towards adult life. In addition we encourage students to explore attitudes towards sexual relationships and to develop strategies for control over their own lives. We also focus on understanding roles within a family. Physical, social and emotional aspects of relationships are explored, including examining possible consequences of decisions taken, along with specific issues such as birth control and sexually transmitted infections.
A variety of teaching materials have been selected from approved health education authority sources. Parents are welcome to view these resources.
Most of the programme will be delivered as part of the Science curriculum and during PSHE lessons.
