Through PSHE, we teach children about Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) and we encourage children to discuss the relating issues. During the scheme of work, pupils will be able to ask questions, which will be answered factually and in an age appropriate manner. Each pupil's privacy will be respected, and no one will be asked to reveal personal information.
Many parents and parent-related organisations support good quality RSHE in school. Parents are the most important educators of young people in personal issues and many welcome the support that school can offer to supplement their home learning.
You may find that your child starts asking questions about the topic at home, or you might want to take the opportunity to talk to your child about issues before the work is covered in school. If you have any queries about the content of the scheme of work or resources used, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Cook at school. All materials used are available for you to browse through should you so wish.
