Relationships and Sex Education Intent

Cleeve Prior CE Primary School considers that Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) is an integral part of the Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) curriculum, which is also linked to Science. We aim to offer children a thoughtfully planned programme on human development, relationships, sexuality and family life within a safe, comfortable atmosphere and in a relaxed relationship between teacher and child. The programme is set within a moral framework and matched to the children’s level of maturity. This policy reflects the requirements of the new Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education document.

Consultations with parents/carers follow the National Guidelines, giving parents the right to withdraw their child/children from Sex Education (but not Relationships or Health Education).

We aim to equip the children with the essential RSE educational knowledge and skills for what comes next. The exploration of new skills and experiences helps to nurture resilience, curiosity and creativity. Through this journey, children develop new forms of cultural capital that makes a difference in individual mind-sets, which consequently shapes their future.

We aim to teach key knowledge and promote honesty and respect for the views and feelings of all people to develop tolerance and understanding.
