RSE Parent Consultation

As you may already be aware, the Department for Education has announced changes to relationships and sex education following nationwide consultation. These changes came into effect from September 2020 and all schools will be required to comply with the updated requirements.


As part of our duty to comply with the updated requirements, we are launching a parent consultation. We hope that consulting with you will help to inform our schools' decisions on when and how certain content is covered, and enable us to reach a general consensus. Consequently, as part of our curriculum review we would like your views on:

  • Our draft policy for Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE)
  • When and how certain content within this subject is covered.


The Draft Policy for RSE can be found below. 

Draft RSE Policy

The following video explains the statutory guidance, the content covered in each year group and examples of resources used in each year group. Please watch with the sound on.

At St George's C of E Primary, we follow the SCARF scheme for Personal, Social and Health Education. RSHE is embedded within this scheme. Below are some useful documents that explain more about this scheme and how it is structured.

After viewing the draft policy and the other useful documents above, we would appreciate receiving any feedback via questionnaire sent out via Parent Mail. Please complete this by Tuesday 30th March. If you have not received a questionnaire, please email the school office 


Your views are especially important to us and we will respond to you on the outcome of this process at the beginning of next term.
