Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)
Safeguarding our children is of paramount importance to us at The OWLS Trust and across all of our academies. We also believe it is essential that children are provided with age-appropriate information to assist them in making sensible choices and developing respect for themselves and others as they progress through the school.
Relationships and sex education is learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up, relationships, sex, human sexuality and sexual health. Some aspects are taught in science and others are taught as part of personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE).
A comprehensive programme of RSE provides accurate information about the body, reproduction, sex and sexual health. It also gives children and young people essential skills for building positive, enjoyable, respectful and non-exploitative relationships and staying safe both on and offline.
With this in mind, we use resources from ‘The Christopher Winter Project’ to support the teaching of RSE throughout the school. These resources have been commended by the Heartsmart curriculum overview.pdf
PSHE Association and fully support the Science National Curriculum.
