Parent / Carers Views

School are always looking to develop and improve our provision through parents suggestions and comments.

Relationship and Health education

Consultation – March 2021

All primary schools in the UK  now have new statutory requirements relating to Relationship education and Health education. This will replace and enhance the Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) that we provide.

To support school in delivering the  new statutory requirements we would like to consult with you, our parents and carers, so that you can express your views, ask any questions you may have and to let us know if you have any concerns with the new requirements.

Please have a look at the Relationships and Sex Education Policy and curriculum overview  by clicking the links below:

Your views will help us shape policy and influence how we deliver relationships and health education topics throughout the school.

If you would like to give your views on the introduction of the new Relationships and Sex Education Policy to our school, please click on the image below, which will open a short survey for you to complete.

If you would like to see what the Department for Education’s new statutory requirements are, please click here.

Click below to download a leaflet – Understanding Relationships and Health Education in your child’s primary school – create by the Department of Education. It explains the changes being made and your rights as a parent with regard to Relationships and Health Education in school.
