Statutory Changes to Personal, Social and Health Education – Engaging with Parents and Carers
At Allesley Primary School, we aim to promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive taught programme of Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education.
As part of PSHE education, the Department for Education introduced compulsory Relationships Education for primary pupils and Relationships and Sex Education for secondary pupils from September 2020. It is also compulsory for all schools to teach Health Education. The subjects are intended to support pupils to be happy, healthy, safe and equipped for adult life.
Before teaching the content that has been made statutory, schools are required to consult parent and carers on their draft policy and intended curriculum. These views will be taken into account when finalising our policy and provision at Allesley Primary School.
Please see the draft policy, a video explaining changes and a document covering FAQ before feeding back using the parent/carer questionnaire. A link for this will be sent out via parent mail.
The consultation period will run until Friday 11th June 2021.
Thank you in advance.
