We understand pupils must be provided with an education that prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. A key part of this relates to relationships and health education, which must be delivered to every primary-aged pupil.
Although it is not statutory to deliver sex education outside of the science curriculum at primary level, the Department of Education recommends all primary schools should have a sex education programme in place, which we are in agreement with and have included in our curriculum.
We understand our responsibility to deliver a high-quality, age-appropriate and evidence-based relationships, health and sex curriculum for all our pupils.
This policy sets out the framework for our relationships, health and sex education curriculum, providing clarity on how it is informed, organised and delivered.
