Relationship Education: Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education
Relationship and Sex Education was delivered to all Y6 children accessing school on Friday 17th July 2020 in their designated bubbles.
The learning objectives that were covered are as follows:
- Identify the changes that happen through puberty to allow sexual reproduction to occur;
- Know a variety of ways in which the sperm can fertilise the egg to create a baby;
- Know the legal age of consent and what it means.
A copy of our RSE policy is available to all parents via the school website. We will be using resources from SCARF – https://www.coramlifeeducation.org.uk/what-we-do/ and the activity titles are as follows:
Activity 1: Puberty for reproduction
Activity 2: Conception
Activity 3: Conception and pregnancy timeline
RSE is not compulsory in primary schools. However, primary schools are required to teach the elements of sex education contained in the science curriculum.
We have uploaded below the information delivered during these sessions, in order to support parents who wish to cover this part of the curriculum. Should you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact school.
