Relationships, Health and Sex Education Parent Consultation – December 2020
Consultation Opens: 30th November 2020
Consultation Closes: 14th December 2020
As you may already be aware, the Department for Education has made Relationships Education and Health Education statutory subjects within the National Curriculum for all schools from September 2020. Sex Education became statutory in secondary schools and discretionary in primary schools.
The statutory guidance for these subjects can be found at:
The new guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world, as well as a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health and wellbeing, safeguarding and healthy relationships. Learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up will give children and young people the information, skills and positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and help them take responsibility for their own well-being.
We understand that parents and carers will have views on what our policy and scheme of work should, or should not, include, and we would like to hear those views through our consultation process. Please note that this consultation does not mean that parents have a right to remove curriculum content, as schools are legally required to teach the content of the National Curriculum.
The final decision regarding what is taught and when is the responsibility of the Trust, and deciding how it is taught is for each school to decide based on their individual context. However, consulting with you will help to inform our final decisions about when and how certain content is covered, and enable us to reach agreement. Therefore, we would like to know your views on:
- Our draft Policy for Relationships, Health and Sex Education
- Our draft Relationships, Health and Sex Education Scheme of Work
All draft documentation regarding this curriculum change are included below for your consideration and feedback should be given through completion of the consultation response form which is available here.
