What is Relationships and Sex Education? (RSE)
RSE is learning accurate and age-appropriate skills, attitudes and knowledge about the body, reproduction, sex and sexual health. RSE also gives children and young people essential skills for building positive, enjoyable, respectful and non-exploitative relationships and staying safe both on and offline. Some aspects are taught in science, and others are taught as part of personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE).
Aims of the RSE curriculum at Towngate Primary Academy
- - To foster a positive notion of lifelong learning about physical, moral and emotional development, including how to look after physical and mental health.
- - To support the development of self-respect and empathy for others.
- - To promote the development of skills and understanding in managing conflict.
- - To learn how to keep our own bodies safe and to avoid any form of exploitation.
Policy Development and Consultation
In order to implement the Relationships and Sex Education curriculum in the academy, a consulatation process has been started involving volunteers from our parental community; these individuals are working alongside the RSE Leader in school to review documentation - including curriculum coverage and policy - for implementation.
