The 1993 Education Act requires sex education to be taught as part of the National Curriculum.
Relationship and Sex Education is not taught in isolation and is part of a programme of work in school on developing life skills. We are very sensitive to the community’s views on this and always teach sensitive areas of the subject such as body changes in single sex groups. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from Relationship and Sex Education lessons. Parents who wish to discuss this with the Headteacher are welcome to make an appointment.
