Relationships and Sex Education
The Governors’ policy for sex education, interprets the teaching of sex education in a broad sense, regarding it as one aspect of growing up responsibly; a process of socialisation which includes the development of good relationships, self-esteem, morality and respect. In most circumstances sex education is set in a much wider health education context. In upper Key Stage 2 sex education has a more specific, although gentle, focus and, prior to our teaching it, parents are invited to view the materials used and to discuss the content.
Parents have a right to withdraw children from sex education, but the Head Teacher would appreciate it, should parents wish to do this, that they discuss the matter beforehand.
