Relationship & Sex Education
We have very detailed and carefully considered teaching approaches for all aspects of these, personalised for each child, their needs and abilities following consultation with families. Helping our pupils to understand how to keep safe, to whatever degree they can, when they rely completely on adults for all their care is vital.
The Department for Education announced changes to the national curriculum for relationships and sex education (RSE). These changes have come into effect and all schools are required to comply with the updated requirements. This means that following consultation with our families and Academy Council we reviewed our RSE curriculum and policy so that we are sure our RSE provision is appropriate for our pupils, based on their:
- Physical and emotional maturity
- Religious and cultural backgrounds
- Special educational needs and disabilities
As always, we continue to welcome your views and comments about RSE at Ivy House School.
