RSE Parent InformationPosted: 5th May 2020
Due to the current pandemic, we have been unable to hold the parent consultation evening which was planned for parents and carers to come into the school and raise any queries directly. Therefore I have included some information and helpful links for you below and ask if you have any further queries to contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org
RSE is an important part of a young person's education and our aim is to provide students with factual information about puberty, body image, healthy relationships, and sexual health. _ At Lea Manor High School, students will complete a 6-week block of RSE each academic year with an emphasis on building healthy relationships to ensure that every child has the opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills to navigate an ever-changing world.
The RSE programme follows the scheme of learning from the PSHE Association and is based on advice and guidance from public health. The scheme is sequenced in nature and is based on prior knowledge and understanding. RSE is a compulsory element of the national curriculum and is fundamental in the health and development and success of our students.
We will be following the statutory guidance from the Department for Education which means that all students will be in lessons regarding relationships, however, parents may wish to withdraw their child from Sex Education lessons. A letter will follow in due course.
