Relationships and Sex Education (RE/RSE) and Physical Health and Mental Well-Being Policy

Dear Parents/Carers,

Relationship and Health Education (RHE)

It is compulsory for all schools to teach Relationships Education and Health Education. The purpose of these subjects is to support all young people to be happy, healthy and safe – to equip them for adult life and to help support children to make positive contributions to society.

You can read our the policy below:

RSHE-Consultation-Spring-2024.docx (

As part of this, all schools are required to consult with parents/carers when developing and reviewing their policies, which will inform decision on when and how certain content is covered.

Effective engagement gives the space and time for parent/carers to input, ask questions, share concerns and for the school to decide the way forward. We will listen to your views, and then make a reasonable decision on how best to proceed. When and how content is taught is ultimately a decision for the school, and consultation does not provide a parental veto on curriculum content.

Please note the survey is available to complete at any point, with no end date – responses will be reviewed periodically and considered when the policy is reviewed each year.

Alternatively you may wish to discuss the Policy content in person if so please arrange a meeting with myself.

Thank you very much for your time and helping support the school.
