PSHE (Personal, Social, and Health Education).
This subject includes sex education and drugs education. In PSHE we teach life skills that enable our children to enter secondary school and eventually adulthood with confidence.
The Governors have decided that the pupils will receive sex education lessons as appropriate for their ages. This will occur mainly in KS2 and in depth for year 5 and 6. Parents can request information with regard to curriculum content and are able to see the materials used in the sex education lessons before they are shown in class.
Over both key stages we teach and discuss with children alcohol and substance use and misuse and help them to develop decision making skills. It is also a parent’s statutory right that they may withdraw their child from Sex Education lessons. Again, parents must inform the Headteacher in writing if they intend to do this.
