Relationship and Sex and Health Education: A Guide for Parents
From September 2020, all secondary schools are required by the government to teach Relationships and Health Education.
Relationships Education is designed to help children to have positive and safe relationships with family, friends and online.
Health Education will help children to make good decisions about their health and wellbeing and enable them to know how to seek support if any health issues arise for themselves or others.
If you would like more information about statutory Relationships and Health Education, please read the government guide “Understanding Relationships and Health Education in your child’s secondary school: a guide for parents”. We have also included further parent guides about the Jigsaw scheme which you may find useful.
At the UCS, we have been delivering Relationships and Health Education within our Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) curriculum for many years. We have reviewed our PSHE curriculum to make sure that our lessons meet the requirements that the government has set out for the content of Relationships and Health Education.
We have also updated our Personal, Social, Health Education and Citizenship Policy to include Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education and we are inviting parents to consider this policy also.
If you have any comments or questions about the policy, please complete the form below by Friday 28th January 2022. We will consider all comments and queries received and will publish responses on this page during January.
