At Farmilo, we aim to promote personal development and wellbeing through a comprehensive programme of Personal, Social, Health and Economic education. This gives children and young people the knowledge , skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain.
As you may already be aware, from September 2020 the Department for Education made Relationships and Sex Education (Primary) and Relationship and Sex Education (Secondary) compulsory in all schools.
What does the new guidance mean?
The new guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, wellbeing, safeguarding and healthy relationships.
All of the sessions will be age-appropriate and meet the needs of all students in the class. All teaching will take place in a safe learning environment and be underpinned by our school ethos and values.
Schools are required to consult with parents when devoloping their Relationship and Sex Education policies. Attached is our policy and an overview of the PSHE curriculum which includes RSE. We use the PSHE associations questioning framework to explore different aspects of PSHE.
We consulted parents about our policy and have provided feedback to some of the questions. Documentation of this can be found below.
