Following guidance from the Department for Education, we are required to incorporate SRE into our curriculum from September 2020. All schools are required to comply. At Stubbin Wood school we offer SRE education in line with statutory guidance.
As a school, and in agreement with the Governing Body and TEAM Education Trust, we have already agreed to teach the elements of sex education as set out in the Primary Science curriculum.
This is in addition to the current personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education offer. PHSE includes sex and relationships education along with developing the social, emotional and cultural development of our students. This learning seeks to enable our children to become independent, confident, resilient and healthy young people.
The SRE element of the curriculum is to equip children with the information they need to prepare for adult life and focuses clearly on healthy, respectful relationships with family and friends, in all contexts including online relationships. We intend for our learners to develop the skills to not only form relationships but to think about relationships with others and recognise when these relationships are positive.
