RSE (Relationships and Sex Education)

Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)

At Bowmandale, Relationships and Sex Education is supported by the curriculum for Science and PSHE. A Relationships and Sex Education policy is in place and staff follow procedures in order to uphold the moral development of our children in all areas of teaching where questions relating to physical and emotional development arise. Consequently, our pupils receive their Relationships and Sex Education in the wider context of relationships, so that they all are prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. Our children are encouraged, from entering the Foundation Stage through to Year 6, to show care and respect for themselves and each other. A programme of support to develop these skills is in place, annually provided by Big Talk Education. Other specific teaching relating to Relationships and Sex Education features in Years 4 and 6, using a range of suitable materials which supplement the children's work with Big Talk Education.
