RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) consultation 2023

At Lindley CE Infant School, we promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education programme. PSHE education is the curriculum subject that gives children the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live safe, healthy, productive lives and meet their full potential. All PSHE teaching takes place in a safe learning environment and is underpinned by our school vision and values.

Since September 2020 schools have been required to follow statutory guidance on teaching Relationships, Sex, Education (RSE) and Health education in English schools. This can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/relationships-education-relationships-and-sex-education-rse-and-health-education

In April 2023, we held a focus group for parents to give their views on our proposed new curriculum changes. The PPT presentation can be seen below. Parents were overwhelmingly positive about the proposed changes and gave some good feedback around how to involve parents going forward.

Following our focus group consultation with parents, we have reviewed our RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) policy and PSHE curriculum to make sure it meets the statutory requirements, as well as the needs of our pupils. We’ve worked hard to make sure that our new curriculum reflects:

  • Age
  • Physical and emotional maturity
  • Religious and cultural backgrounds
  • Special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND)

Updated RSE policy June 2023

Following the consultation in 2023, we updated our RSE policy and our proposed new curriculum, which we call ‘Me in my world’. Our revised policy can be found below.

At the end of the consultation, we wrote to parent to answer some of the questions raised.  Please see link below:
