Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)
In 2019 it was announced that it is a statutory requirement that all schools in England and Wales are teaching Relationship and Sex Education as a fundamental part of the curriculum. Due to the pandemic, this date was postponed until the summer term of this academic year. With PSHE [and RSE] a fully established part of our curriculum at Trinity we have been able to deliver many aspects of the new statutory content and meet the needs of our students.
These lessons are taught within our YR 7 and YR 8 #Trinity3 curriculum, timetabled PSHE lessons, our tutor programme and focused PSHE days.
Last academic year we took on the role as an early adopter of the DfE statuary guidance and were able to assist other schools within the local area with policy updates and resources. As part of a whole-school approach we annually revise our RSE curriculum and policy, so we can be sure our provision is appropriate for our students.
As part of reviewing our existing provision and implementation of Relationship & Sex Education [RSE] curriculum, we want to consult with parent/carers and students to ensure there is a consensus on our approaches to policy and the curriculum content.
The consultation process for parent and student feedback will be from Monday 27th September; the consultation will close on Friday 8th October.
As part of this, parents/carers and students will be asked to read through the following two documents and make comments on them. The two documents that you are asked to read as part of the consultation will be:
