Sex Education

This is an integral part of the PSHCE curriculum. Through the Science curriculum children learn about life cycles, including plant and animal (including human) reproduction and the care of the young. Care is taken to match appropriate teaching to the maturity of the child. We encourage our children to develop skills, values and attitudes that will give them confidence when coping with the physical, emotional and social changes of growing up. Sex education is placed in the moral framework of a caring, loving family relationship and showing respect for others as well as for themselves.

Parents are invited into school to look at the materials used for sex education in Year 6. During the next year we will be extending this education to appropriately include Year 5. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from all or part of sex education, except for the part which is a requirement of National Curriculum Science.
