Aspects of Sex Education are taught in Science, PSHE, (Personal, Social and Health Education), RE and to a lesser extent some other curriculum areas. The principal aim of the school’s Sex Education programme is to ensure an understanding that positive, caring environments are essential for the development of a good self-image and that individuals are in charge of and responsible for their own bodies. The curriculum provides knowledge about the processes of reproduction and the nature of sexuality and positive relationships. It encourages the acquisition of skills and attitudes that allow pupils to manage their relationships in a responsible and healthy manner.
Parents have the right to withdraw their children from all or part of the Sex Education provided by the school, other than those elements that are required by the National Curriculum Science Order.
