Relationships and Health Education Consultation

KS1 & KS2 statutory Relationships & Health Education

At Warren Road, we believe that promoting the health and wellbeing of our pupils is an extremely important part of their overall education. We do this through our Personal, Social, Health & Economic education curriculum (PSHE), which is taught weekly in every class from Reception to Year 6. This is taught through 3 main themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world.

As you may be aware Relationships and Health Education will become compulsory in all primary schools and Relationships and Sex education in all secondary schools in 2020. In preparation for this, we are in the process of reviewing our PSHE curriculum to ensure that Relationships & Health Education are incorporated successfully into our current plans.

As part of the process, we would like to consult with parents to enable you to give your views and ask any questions. You will find the proposed Health and Relationships Education policy, along with the proposed updated curriculum overviews below so that you can see what we plan to teach in each year group. Please be advised that with every subject, the lessons on the overview may be moved around and taught at different points in the year to suit the content of the curriculum and needs of the year group.

We have also attached the Department for Education guidance for parents. The consultation period will be open from Friday 17th July until Friday 7th August 2020.

It is important that your child receives the best possible Relationships and Health education in order to safeguard them during their school years and thereafter. We know that it is of vital importance that those teaching your children (whether it be parent or class teacher) are well equipped in order to implement the learning in a safe and respectful environment. It is also important that the educator is able to deal honestly and sensitively with any questions or concerns your child may have.

Staff at Warren Road will be receiving appropriate support and given the tools and confidence to implement the new curriculum. We are also happy to support parents and carers in any way that we can.

If you have any questions regarding the updated PSHE curriculum which includes the new Relationships and Health Education components, please do not hesitate to email me during the consultation period using this email address:
