Understanding the changes to Relationships and Health Education
Recently, the government has required all primary schools to teach Relationships and Health Education. Relationships Education is designed to help children to have positive and safe relationships with family, friends and online. Health Education will help children to make good decisions about their health and wellbeing and enable them to know how to seek
support if any health issues arise for themselves or others.
At Scout Road Academy, we have been delivering Relationships and Health Education within our Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) curriculum for many years. We have reviewed our PSHE curriculum to make sure that our lessons meet the requirements that the government has set out.
We have also updated our Relationships and Sex Education policy to reflect the new statutory status for Relationships Education, and we are inviting parents to consider this policy before it is finalised.
Please find below a PowerPoint for your information, the draft policy, a guide outlining how we teach about LGBTQ and a questionnaire to forward your responses.

Could you please complete the questionnaire by Friday 26th February. We will consider all comments and queries received before finalising our policy.
