From September 2020, a new Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education curriculum is being introduced by the government. Relationships and Health Education will be mandatory for all pupils in primary schools from Summer 2021, with primary schools having the option to teach non-mandatory aspects of sex education.
However, Newcroft is ready to teach this from Autumn 1 2020 and this now forms part of the school's statutory aspects of the curriculum.
The aim of the curriculum is to put in place the key building blocks of healthy, respectful relationships, focusing on family and friendships, in all contexts, including online.
The government advocates that high quality, evidence-based and age-appropriate teaching of the subject can help prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life, and places an emphasis on keeping children safe.
Sex education is not compulsory in primary schools, although we are encouraged by the DfE to determine if we choose to teach some of the aspects of sex education to meet the needs of our pupils. The DfE recommends that all primary schools should have a sex education programme tailored to the age and physical and emotional maturity of the pupils.
A four-week consultation period was given to parents to obtain their views before the final policy was published in October, 2020.
Our RSE Leader is Miss Busby.
